Meeting Description:

This conference will bring together researchers working on the
syntactic structure of less widely studied languages from a variety of
perspectives. Contributions are expected to be based on first-hand
data of individual languages or to adopt a broadly comparative
perspective. All major theoretical frameworks are equally welcome, as
is work done in analytical frameworks developed in typology or field
