Linguistic Sub-field: General Linguistics 

Call Deadline: 01-Mar-2004 
This is a session of the following conference: Poznan Linguistic
Meeting

Meeting Description:

A session open for papers touching on the interface between two or
more subfields of linguistics. Organiser: Prof. Geoff Schwartz
(Poznan)

 

Linguists of all species, be they phonologists, phoneticians,
syntacticians or semanticians often get into the habit of being very
concentrated on their own specific subfields. Because of this, views
on many linguistic riddles are occasionally narrow, lacking the
perspective that an outside observer can provide. This, however, is
starting to change, and we see more and more research examining how
various linguistic subfields can interact.

The Interfaces panel at the Poznan Linguistic Meeting seeks to
encourage this trend, and is open to any paper touching on at least 2
areas of linguistics (syntax-phonology, morphology-syntax,
phonetics-phonology, syntax- semantics, etc). Speakers are thus
encouraged to make their presentations user-friendly and interesting
to linguists who specialization might be slightly different from their
own. We hope to see you in Poznan in the spring for some interfacing!

Deverbal nouns are a crucial topic of linguistic inquiry because their
analysis involves problems of morphology, syntax and semantics and can
shed light on the interfaces between these components. Abstracts are
invited on all questions pertaining to deverbal nouns, including

- The different morphological processes constructing nouns from verbs
- How these morphological processes influence the syntactic and
semantic properties of the resulting noun
- The relationship between the argument structure of the source verb
and that of the resulting noun
- The relationship between the syntactic subcategorization properties
of the source verb and those of the resulting deverbal noun
- The semantic interpretation of deverbal nouns and its links to
argument structure, subcategorization, and morphology
- The status of nouns which are semantically linked to a verbal
predicate without there being any morphological relationship between
the two.
- The status of gerunds and other intermediate forms between nouns and
verbs
- Comparative and typological studies of deverbal nouns
- Studies of the choice in discourse between an NP headed by a
deverbal noun and a finite clause headed by the source verb

Submissions on other languages than English and French will also be
welcome. Talks will be delivered in English or French.

Submission guidelines
1) An anonymous abstract (in English or French) of less than 1000
words (excluding bibliographical references). The abstract (including
references) must fit on 2 pages in A4 format using a Times 12 font (or

conclusions. References must be made to previous work on the subject
and the crucial data on which your conclusions are based must be
mentioned.
2) On a separate page, you should mention your name, first name,
affiliation, mailing address, academic status and the title of your
paper.
Submissions should be sent by electronic mail to
deverbalnounsuniv-lille3.fr, preferably in .pdf format (or .rtf or
.doc if .pdf is unavailable). Please be sure to send the page with the
personal data as a separate attached document from the

authors). Abstracts must be received before February 15 2004.
