Meeting Description:

Invited Speakers:

Jean Lowenstamm, University of Paris 7
Zeljko Boskovic, University of Connecticut

This workshop is about empty elements in syntax and phonology, which played an
important role in theories predating the minimalist program and optimality
theory. We want to investigate in how far the theories that accounted for the
typology and distribution of these elements are still relevant for our
present-day thinking, and to what extent our current insights shed new light on
this issue.
