Workshop on Syntax: Theoretical Approaches to Case

Organizer: Jong-Bok Kim (Kyung Hee U) 
Invited Speakers: Joan Maling (Brandeis U), William O'Grady (U of
Hawaii), Peter Sells (Stanford U), James H-S Yoon (U of Illinois)
 
Workshop Description: Case marking remains a central topic in
generative grammar for several reasons, including the fact that it:
(1) plays a central role in argument licensing; (2) signals
grammatical functions; (3) has the potential to mark properties of
information structure; (4) has a core role in defining properties of
the syntax-morphology interface. Different theoretical approaches
offer different perspectives and formal tools for the exploration of
these topics. We hope that the workshop will involve diverse views on
the theoretical nature of case marking, with the goal of achieving
greater insight into issues relating to the topics above. We invite
abstracts that address any empirical or theoretical issues relevant to
the analysis of case, from any theoretical perspective.
 
Workshop on Phonology & Morphology: Issues on Loanword Adaptation

Organizers: Yongsoon Kang (SungKyunKwan U) & Chung-Kon Shi (KAIST)
Invited Speakers: Francis Katamba (Lancaster U), Ki-Moon Lee (Seoul
NU), Hyoung-youb Kim (Korea U), Mira Oh (Cheonnam N U)

Workshop Description: Loanword adaptation would be one of the great
objects of research in the areas of Phonology and Morphology for such
reasons as (1) it provides the window for the internal structure of
mother tongue (2) it sheds light on the interaction of neighboring
languages, and (3) it would have its own mechanism through which
foreign words are introduced. Despite the significance of the
phenomena, many of loanword issues are still open to debate and
discussion. We hope that the workshop makes a great place to discuss
and get the insight of the borrowing process. We sincerely invite
abstracts that address any empirical or theoretical issues relevant to
the loanword adaptation.

Workshop on Semantics & Pragmatics: Representation and Computation of
Presupposition

Organizer: Hae-Kyung Wee (Korea Cyber U)
Invited Speakers: Hans Kamp (Stuttgart U), Chungmin Lee (Seoul N U),
Jae-Il Yeom (Hongik U), Keumhyun Moon (Sookmyung WU)

Workshop Description: Presupposition involves a variety of
semantic/pragmatic issues, including projection problem,
accommodation, and binding, which have motivated formal semantic
theories to evolve into the current states of dynamic semantics, and
its interrelation with other semantic/pragmatic phenomena. The aim of
the workshop is to explore these issues, regarding the representation
and computation of presupposition in particular, and their
implications to other related issues. Topics to be discussed include,
but are not limited to: 1) The treatment of presupposition and/or its
implementation in semantic or pragmatic frameworks, 2) the
interrelation between theories of presupposition and theories of other
related semantic and/or pragmatic phenomena, e.g., anaphora, focus,
topic, information structure, etc., and 3) the proper and consistent
treatment of different types of presuppositions. Abstracts are invited
for papers on any theoretical or empirical issues related to these and
other related topics.

Abstract Submission: Abstracts should be submitted electronically to
the organizers by March 15, 2004: Abstracts for a Workshop on Syntax

BACKGROUND
We are pleased to announce our Twelfth Manchester Phonology Meeting
(12mfm). The mfm is the UK's annual phonology conference, held in late
May every year in Manchester and organised by people in various parts
of the country, and abroad. In an informal atmosphere, we discuss a
wide range of topics, including the phonological description of a wide
range of languages, issues in phonological theory, aspects of
phonological acquisition and implications of phonological change;
anyone interested in phonology can submit an abstract on anything
phonological. Full papers will last around 30 minutes with around 10
minutes for questions, and there will be a high-profile poster session
lasting one and a half hours.

SPECIAL SESSION
There is no conference theme - abstracts can be submitted on anything,
but, following the success of such sessions in previous years, a
special themed session has been organised on 'Phonology and Loanword
Adaptation'. This will feature invited speakers and conclude in an
open discussion session when contributions from the audience will be
very welcome. Abstracts on this theme are also certainly welcome.

SPECIAL SESSION SPEAKERS (in alphabetical order)
* Michael Kenstowicz (MIT, USA)
* Carole Paradis (Universite Laval, Canada)
* Moira Yip (University College London, UK)

ABSTRACT SUBMISSION
**This is a summary - please consult the website for full details**

* There is no conference theme - abstracts can be submitted on
anything. Abstracts should be sent to Patrick Honeybone by email
(patrick.honeyboneed.ac.uk) by 15th February 2004.

* Abstracts should be no longer than one side of A4, with 2.5cm or one
inch margins, single-spaced, with a font size no smaller than 12, and
with normal character spacing.

* Please send two copies of your abstract - one of these should be
anonymous and one should include your name, affiliation and email at
the top of the page, directly below the title.

* Please use one of these formats for your abstract: rtf, Word, pdf,
or plain text. If you need to use a phonetic font in your abstract,
either embed it in a pdf file, or use the SILdoulos93 font, which can
be downloaded for free from this site:
www.sil.org/computing/fonts/encore-ipa2.html.

* Please indicate whether you would prefer to present your work as an
oral paper or a poster, or whether you would be prepared to present it
in either form.

* If you need technical equipment for your talk, please say so in the
message accompanying your abstract and we will do our best to provide
it, although this cannot be guaranteed.

* We aim to finalise the programme, and to contact abstract-senders by
mid-March. At present, there are no plans for publishing the general
proceedings of the Meeting. We would like to keep the mfm as an
informal forum where speakers can air new ideas which are still in the
early stages of development.

available on the conference website - please make sure that you
consult these before submitting an abstract:
