Linguistic Sub-field: Semantics 

Meeting Description:

The main purpose of the conference is to bring together insights on
how eventuality structures are reflected in linguistic form and how
such structures can be derived from it in utterance
interpretation. Papers describing research contributions on any aspect
of event-based semantics or verbal semantics are welcome for
discussion.
