SECOND CALL FOR PAPER

9th International Conference on Head-Driven Phrase Structure Grammar
Kyung Hee University, Seoul, South Korea
8-9 August 2002

The 9th International Conference on HPSG will take place on 8-9 August 2002, 
on the campus of the Kyung Hee University in Seoul, South Korea.
The conference will be co-hosted by the Linguistic Society of Korea (LSK) 
and the Center for the Study of Language, Kyung Hee University, as part of 
the LSK Summer Conference 2002.

HPSG-2002 solicits abstracts for presentations that address linguistic, 
foundational, or computational issues relating to the framework of
Head-Driven Phrase Structure Grammar.

INVITED SPEAKERS:
Robert Borsley (University of Essex)
Robert Levine (Ohio State University)
Ivan Sag (Stanford University)

SPECIAL AUG. 7 LSK SYNTAX WORKSHOPS of interest to the HPSG community:


The LSK conference will take place at the same location on 5-7 August,
2002, immediately preceding HPSG-2002.
The final day of the LSK Conference, August 7, will feature two syntax 
workshops directed at people working in HPSG and other theoretical 
frameworks, on these topics:

Perspectives on Complex Predicates
Perspectives on Inversion

LSK invites abstracts for these workshops.Information and
descriptions of the workshops appear below. For more information on
the LSK meeting, see http://web.kyunghee.ac.kr/~lsk2002/ or
contact Jong-Bok Kim, jongbokkhu.ac.kr

HPSG-2002 SUBMISSION DETAILS:

We invite E-MAIL submissions of abstracts for 30 minute presentations 
on any topic related to HPSG. Your abstract must have two parts:
1) an information page in plain text format, containing
- author name(s)
- affiliation(s)
- e-mail and postal address(es)
- title of paper

2) An extended abstract with title, not
more than 5 (five) pages long, including all figures and references.
Abstracts may be either in plain ASCII, PostScript, or PDF format.
A successful abstract clearly describes the issues, presents an
analysis (if appropriate) and presents evidence for any proposals
made, including samples of data.

If your mailer allows attachments, then please send part (1) in the message 
body, and part (2) as an attachment. (Otherwise send both in message body.)

Abstracts should contain the subject heading 'HPSG-02 abstract' and should 
be sent to: wechslermail.utexas.edu

All abstracts will be reviewed anonymously, so authors are asked to
avoid obvious self-references in their abstracts.

Presentations will last 30 minutes + 10 minutes discussion.

LINGUISTIC SOCIETY OF KOREA SYNTAX WORKSHOPS
Aug. 7, 2002
Kyung Hee University in Seoul, South Korea
(same site as HPSG-02)

Workshop 1. PERSPECTIVES ON COMPLEX PREDICATES
Invited Workshop participants:
Peter Sells (organizer); others TBA

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; Robert Levine (co-organizers); Howard Lasnik;
Robert Borsley

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.

LSK Workshop abstracts should be a single page, with an
additional page for data/references if needed. 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 ``LSK
2002 Workshop Abstract: Your last name and first name initial''.
Include all the author information (the title of the paper, workshop
title, 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.

Message 2: 23rd Annual Meeting on Greek Linguistics

Subject: 23rd Annual Meeting on Greek Linguistics

23rd Annual Meeting

Aristotle University of Thessaloniki
17-19 May 2002

Call for abstracts


Dear Colleague, 

The Department of Linguistics, Faculty of
Philosophy, Aristotle University of Thessaloniki,
Greece, is organizing its 23rd Annual Meeting on Greek
Linguistics, 17-19 May 2002. The Meeting is about
Greek Linguistics in general (synchrony, diachrony,
phonetics, phonology, morphology, syntax, semantics,
pragmatics, sociolinguistics, lexicology,
lexicography, computational linguistics etc.).

We kindly ask you to pay attention to the following
modifications wrt the form and function of the
Meeting:
(1) There will be two alternative ways of
presentation: (a) oral paper, (b) poster. (Note: The
author of the poster should be present). There will be
95 slots for both types of papers.
(2) There will be internal refereeing of the
abstracts which will be submitted, as well as the
final paper for the Proceedings. Both will be reviewed
by the Scientific Committee of the Conference, which,
starting this year, will operate in parallel to the
Organizing Committee. The Scientific Committee is
constituted by all the members of the linguistics
Department of the University of Thessaloniki. You are
asked to submit eleven (11) copies of your abstract.
(3) Each name can feature only once (whether in oral
paper, poster, single or joint presentation).

The abstract must not exceed one page, including
bibliography. Participation forms and abstracts can
only be submitted via surface mail.
Deadlines: 5 February 2002 for posters
	 15 February for oral papers

Should your paper be accepted, you will be informed
about the program within a month. You are kindly
requested not to forget to fill in your telephone
number, fax and e-mail on the participation form.
