Call Deadline: 01-Nov-2005

Meeting Description:

Rarissima and rara, features and properties found only in one or very few languages, tell us as much about the capacities and limits of human language(s) as do universals. Explaining the existence of such rare phenomena on the one hand, and the fact of their rareness or uniqueness on the other, should prove a reasonable and interesting challenge to any theory of how human language works.

Universals of language have been studied extensively for the last four decades, allowing fundamental insight into the principles and general properties of human language. Only incidentally have researchers looked at the other end of the scale. And even when they did, they mostly just noted peculiar facts as ''quirks'' or ''unusual behavior'', without making too much of an effort at explaining them beyond calling them ''exceptions'' to various rules or generalizations.

Rarissima and rara, features and properties found only in one or very few languages, tell us as much about the capacities and limits of human language(s) as do universals.

Send your one-page abstract to Jan Wohlgemuth at the address below, either by email (preferably in PDF format) or as hard copy, to arrive no later than November 1st, 2005.

Papers should be presented in English. The time allotted for presentation is 30 minutes plus 15 minutes for discussion. Notification of acceptance is by December 15th, 2005.

The abstract itself should contain no identification of the author. A separate sheet or the cover e-mail should contain the title of the abstract, the name(s) of the author(s), and one correspondence address, with institutional affiliation, mailing address, telephone, fax, and email address as available:
