Linguistic Field(s): Morphology; Semantics; Syntax

Meeting Description:

The idea behind this conference is to bring together syntacticians and semanticists who have worked on the topic of nominal incorporation and/or nominal conflation, often independently. In addition to giving descriptions and providing accounts of the different kinds of nominal incorporation available cross-linguistically, the meeting hopes to address issues such as the status of pseudo nominal incorporation and the concept of pseudo nominal conflation. Papers on constructions and processes that resemble noun incorporation (e.g. bare nouns, complex predication, etc.) are also very welcome.

Cette conférence a pour but de réunir syntacticiens et sémanticiens travaillant sur l’incorporation et/ou la conflation nominale, souvent indépendamment. En plus des contributions descriptives et théoriques sur l’incorporation nominale à travers les langues, le colloque espère apporter des réponses à des questions nouvelles telles que le statut de la pseudo incorporation nominale et le concept de la pseudo conflation nominale. Viennent s’ajouter à ces deux thèmes principaux toutes les constructions et tous les processus qui ressemblent de près ou de loin à l’incorporation nominale (noms nus, prédication complexe, etc.).
