 Linguistic Field(s): Semantics 
 
 Meeting Description: 
 
 This workshop is devoted to the lexical semantics of adjectives and
 adverbs, particularly adverbs of manner and degree. It will be structured
 in four thematic sessions, each of which consists of two talks and an
 extended commentary. The topics of the sessions are: 
 - Issues at the syntax-semantics interface 
 - Gradability
 - Adjectives, adverbs and event structure
 - Adjectives, adverbs and presupposition
 
 The goal is to bring together recent research in these domains in an effort
 to establish points of connection 
 - between the semantics of adjectives and adverbs in general
 - between the syntactic distribution of adjectives/adverbs on the one hand
 and their semantics/pragmatics on the other
 - between the event structures associated with adjectives/adverbs and their
 gradability characteristics, and  
 - between the lexical semantics of adjectives/adverbs and their behavior in
 discourse 
 
 Speakers include: Chris Barker, Olivier Bonami, Violeta Demonte, Jenny
 Doetjes, Regina Eckardt, Daniele Godard, Graham Katz, Christopher Kennedy,
 Richard Larson, Louise McNally, Marin Morzycki, Christopher Potts, Gina
 Taranto, and Hiroko Yamakido.
 
 A complete program and talk titles will be announced shortly on the web page.
 
 Registration for the workshop is free, but we request that those
 individuals interested in attending sign up by web at
 http://www.upf.edu/dtf/adjectives.
