Linguistic Field(s): General Linguistics; Semantics; Syntax; Typology
Call Deadline: 01-Mar-2006
organized as part of the European Summer School on Logic, Language and Information
31 July - 11 August, 2006 in Malaga, Spain
In natural languages a functional operation can be manifested more than once in the morphosyntax of one sentence. Most notable are the phenomena of negative concord (where several negative elements contribute to one negation) and sequence of tense phenomena, where the same happens in the temporal domain. Similar observations can be made regarding the domain of mood, case-agreement, multiple Wh, and conditional sentences. On a general and intuitive level, the similarities are striking.
These phenomena have each been studied in various domains, from both an empirical and a theoretica point of view. With this workshop we want to solicit contributions which approach the phenomena from a general, cross-categorial perspective: across the various domains, theoretical, and typological as well. Thematic questions: What should be the logical form of those constructions? To what extent (at what cost) does it allow for a compositional treatment? How similar and how general are the phenomena really? What do these phenomena tell us about the model of grammar?
The general aim of this workshop is to bring together researchers of different disciplines (semantics, syntax, typology) in order to create new insights about concord phenomena and the syntax-semantics interface. The workshop aims to provide a forum for advanced PhD students and researchers to present and discuss their work with colleagues and researchers who work in the broad subject areas represented at ESSLLI.
Authors are invited to submit an extended abstract on the general theme of the worshop. (Cognitive and evolutionary analyses are welcome, too.) Submissions should be anonymous and no longer than two pages and should be either in .pdf, .txt, .doc or .rtf format. Please send your submission electronically to the above email addresses of the organizers, with the name of the author(s) and their affilitation(s), their adresses and the title of the paper in the body of the message. The submissions will be reviewed by the workshop's programme committee (see below). The accepted papers will appear in the workshop proceedings published by ESSLLI. The format for the final version will be .pdf.
The workshop is part of ESSLLI 2006. It will consist of five 90-minute sessions held over five consecutive days in the second week of ESSLLI. Depending on the number and quality of the submissions there will be 2 or 3 slots for paper presentation so the talks including the discussion will be either 45 or 30 minutes. On the first day the workshop organizers will give an introduction to the topic, and the workshop ends with a general discussion.
The organizers intend both to organize a follow up of this workshop, and a book or special journal issue around the subject. Both options will be discussed at the workshop in Malaga.

Call for Papers
The aim of the conference is to continue the success of the previous two conferences held at the Universities of Limerick and Belfast in 2002 and 2004 by exploring ways in which studies of language varieties can be of value to those working at the interface of language studies and other academic disciplines or other activities involving language use. Among the possible interfaces are: language teaching; professional communication; translation studies, literature, cross-cultural communication''. Given the scope of the IVACS research group, corpus-based approaches to analyzing language at the interface are particularly welcome.
Please send three paper copies of your abstract totalling no more than 300 words to the following address:
Svenja Adolphs (IVACS 2006)
School of English Studies
The University of Nottingham

In addition, please send one electronic version of your abstract to IVACSnottingham.ac.uk as an attachment entitled 'IVACS06_oneinitialsurname', e.g. IVACS06_rcarter
Title in bold on all copies
Name, affiliation, address, tel and e-mail address on one paper copy and the electronic copy
