Linguistic Field(s): Linguistic Theories; Syntax

Meeting Description:

New Horizons in the Grammar of Raising and Control, supported in part by a
National Science Foundation grant, is a project consisting of a three-hour panel
at the January 2005 Linguistic Society of America annual meeting in San
Francisco, and a workshop at the July 2005 LSA Linguistic Institute at
Harvard/MIT. The topic of these meetings is the analysis of two grammatical
constructions, Raising and Control, which have been central to the development
of linguistic theory over the past 40 years. The aim of the January 2005 panel
is to articulate a common set of research questions and formulate a range of
possible hypotheses which to be addressed at the July 2005 workshop. Issues
addressed at the January panel will include (i) the scope and limitations of
movement accounts (covert and overt) in accounting for these constructions, (ii)
the role of semantics and syntax, respectively, in the articulation of adequate
analyses, (iii) the syntactic and semantic properties of relevant null
categories, and (iv) the cross-linguistic typology of these constructions (e.g.
forward and backward Raising and Control). Workshop participants will be asked
to address these and other relevant issues, and are invited to bring new
empirical data, especially from understudied languages, into focus.
Participation is sought both from among theoretical linguists and from linguists
whose research interests lie in the interdisciplinary areas of language
acquisition, historical linguistics, sociolinguistics and language variation,
and neurolinguistics.

June 15 is the deadline for early registration for the New Horizons in the
Grammar of Raising and Control (Workshop)
