Message 2: Workshops on Complex Predicates and Inversion

Date: Thu, 24 Jan 2002 14:58:06 +0900
From: Jong-Bok Kim <jongbokkhu.ac.kr>
Subject: Workshops on Complex Predicates and Inversion

The 2002 LSK International Summer Conference hosted by the Linguistic
Society of Korea invites abstracts for the following two workshops. We
encourage proposals from diverse theoretical frameworks (such as
Minimialism, HPSG, and LFG). The workshops will be held on the final
day of the LSK conference at Kyung Hee University in Seoul, Korea on
August 5-7, 2002 (see http://web.khu.ac.kr/~lsk2002 for more
information). Also HPSG-2002 will follow immediately after these
workshops (see http://web.khu.ac.kr/~hpsg2002 for more information).


Workshop 1. PERSPECTIVES ON COMPLEX PREDICATES

Invited Workshop participants: Peter Sells (Stanford University,
organizer); Norbert Horstein (Maryland University); and others

Complex Predicates -- for example certain causative, resultative,
serial verb, and light verb constructions -- are predicates composed
of more than one grammatical element (either morphemes or words), each
of which contributes part of the syntactic and semantic information
more typically associated with a single head. Complex Predicates are
found in many (perhaps all) languages, and often show quite similar
combinations of argument structure despite radically different overt
expressions across languages. They raise several analytical
questions: How are the composite argument structures formed and
represented (e.g. exactly what is combined, and how does that
combination happen)? What is the range of permissible argument
structure combinations (i.e. the semantic and syntactic typology of
complex predicates)? What is the set of permissible structural
representations for a given type (e.g. causatives)?

Different theoretical approaches such as HPSG, LFG, and GB/MP, offer
different perspectives and formal tools for the exploration of these
questions. This workshop will air diverse views on this topic, with
the goal of achieving greater insight into the questions above and
other related issues. We invite abstracts for 30 minute presentations
that address any empirical or theoretical issues relevant to the
analysis of Complex Predicates, from any theoretical perspective.

Workshop 2. PERSPECTIVES ON INVERSION

Invited Workshop participants: Ivan Sag and Robert Levine (Stanford
University and Ohio State University, co-organizers); Howard Lasnik
(University of Connecticut); Robert Borsley (University of Essex)

Inversion -- the patterned positional alternation of lexical
elements -- has been of central importance in the development of most
frameworks for syntactic analysis. Inversion phenomena are diverse,
including interrogative-related initial position in Germanic, Romance
and other language families (e.g. English subject-auxiliary
inversion), second position phenomena, extraction-related `stylistic'
inversion in Romance, VSO languages, etc. A range of approaches to
inversion have been offered: transformational frameworks treat
inversion phenomena in terms of operations such as Head Movement; HPSG
and other constraint-based, lexicalist (CBL) frameworks allow
alternate structures (inverted and non-inverted) to be directly
generated; and some LFG treatments take a middle ground, positing the
Head-Movement-like notion of 'extended head', whereby a word can lie
outside the phrase it heads, but in a constraint-based setting. The
purpose of this session is to bring together researchers working in
transformational and CBL frameworks to arrive at a deeper
understanding of the theoretical and empirical issues at stake in the
different approaches to inversion that have been explored.
Contributions to this session may address any empirical or theoretical
issues relevant to the analysis of inversion phenomena. We invite
abstracts for 30 minute presentations addressing any aspect of
inversion, using any theoretical framework.

GUIDELINES FOR ABSTRACT SUBMISSIONS

Abstracts should be as specific as possible. Include a statement of
your topic or problem, your approach, and your conclusions. Abstracts
should not exceed one page in length, plus one additional page of data
and/or references. Abstracts should be submitted electronically to
lsk2002khu.ac.kr. The abstract should either be pasted into the email
or should be an attachment as an ASCII text file, Word, PS or PDF
file. Please use the subject header 'Workshop Abstract: Your last
name and first name initial'. Include all author information (the
title of the paper, area, the name(s) and affiliation(s) of the
author(s), and the address, phone number and e-mail address of the
primary author) in the body of the e-mail.

Deadline for LSK Workshop abstract submission: March 15, 2002
Notification of acceptance: April 30, 2002
