Message 2: Bound Pronouns Workshop

Date: Tue, 23 Jan 2001 10:33:23 +0200
From: Lina Choueiri <>
Subject: Bound Pronouns Workshop


A workshop to be conducted in conjunction with the conference on The Syntax
of Semitic Languages and its Interfaces (May 4-6, 2001) and the workshop on
Root and Template Morphology (May 7, 2001), Department of Linguistics,
University of Southern California.

Date: May 3, �2001�

Invited speakers: NORBERT HORNSTEIN

What is the status of bound pronouns in the grammar? How are they derived?
What are the conditions on their licensing and interpretation? What do
they contribute to the syntactic and semantic structures of sentences?

>From the perspective of recent developments in grammatical theory, many of
these issues have acquired new significance. It is for this reason that
the Department of Linguistics at the University of Southern California, in
conjunction with its conference on the Syntax of Semitic Languages and its
Interfaces, will be hosting a workshop devoted to the topic of Bound Pronouns.

Abstracts are invited for 30 or 40 minute talks (plus 15 minute
discussions), touching upon any aspect of the topic of bound pronouns
including, but not limited its syntactic and semantic ramifications.

	(including examples and references). Please enclose a 3x5 card with 
	your submission stating name of paper, name of author, affiliation,
