Meeting Description:

International Conference on Adjectives
University of Lille 3
September 13-15 2007

As opposed to verbs and nouns, adjectives have often been somewhat neglected in
linguistic research. However adjectives and their properties represent a broad
ranging research topic raising many major issues, both from a typological point
of view, with respect to the definition of the category, and from the point of
view of their syntax and semantics, which combine verbal and nominal properties.
Investigations of the adjective can raise major theoretical challenges for
linguistic theories, which tend to be centered on the verb and the noun, raising
numerous theoretical questions. Abstracts for the conference we are organizing
at the University of Lille 3, in September 2007, are invited on all questions
pertaining to adjectives.

Important dates:
-Dead line for abstract submission: 15 February 2007
-Notification of acceptance to authors: 1 May 2007
-Preliminary program: June 15 2007
-Conference: September 13-15 2007

outside of the noun phrase
- Predicative uses of adjectives
- The ordering of adjectives
- Relationships between adjectives and participles and other
intermediate forms between the adjective and verb
- Relations between adjectives and nouns
- The typological status of adjectives

Colloque international sur les adjectifs
Université Lille 3, France
13-15 septembre 2007

1e Appel à communications
(version française)

Conférenciers invités : Guglielmo Cinque (Università di Venezia), Greville
Corbett (University of Surrey), Chris Kennedy (University of Chicago), Louise
McNally (Universitat Pompeu Fabra), Ora Matushansky (Université de Paris 8)

Par rapport aux verbes et aux noms, les adjectifs constituent les parents
pauvres en linguistique. Pourtant, les adjectifs et leurs propriétés
représentent un vaste domaine de recherche et posent souvent de nombreux défis à
la théorie linguistique, à la fois au niveau typologique, pour ce qui est de la
définition de la classe, et par leur statut syntaxico-sémantique, qui combine
des propriétés verbales et nominales. Leur étude permet cependant d'éprouver les
différentes théories linguistiques centrées sur les verbes et les noms et
soulève des questions multiples qui rendent intéressante toute investigation
portant sur les membres de cette catégorie aux contours encore flous.
Les soumissions que nous sollicitons pour le colloque que nous tiendrons à
l'université de Lille 3 en septembre 2007 pourront porter sur toute question en
rapport avec la problématique de l'adjectif. A titre indicatif, l'approche
pourra être:

- La morphologie dérivationnelle des adjectifs
- La flexion adjectivale
- La sémantique lexicale des adjectifs
- Leur structure argumentale
- La syntaxe des adjectifs et leur comportement à l'intérieur et
à l'extérieur du syntagme nominal
- L'emploi épithète et prédicatif des adjectifs
- L'ordre des adjectifs
- Les relations entre adjectifs et participes et autres formes
intermédiaires entre verbe et adjectif
- Les relations entre adjectifs et noms
- Le statut typologique des adjectifs

Calendrier:

- Date limite de soumission : 15 février 2007
- Notification des acceptations aux auteurs : 1e mai 2007
- Programme préliminaire : 15 juin 2007
- Colloque : 13-15 septembre 2007


Modalités de soumission:

1) Un résumé anonyme (en français ou en anglais) ne dépassant pas 1000 mots,
bibliographie non comprise, l'ensemble (résumé + bibliographie) ne dépassant pas
2 pages format A4 corps Times 12. Le résumé devra spécifier clairement le sujet
traité et les conclusions principales établies en faisant référence aux travaux
antérieurs sur la question. Les données les plus centrales, qui permettent
d'étayer vos conclusions, devront être citées.
2) Une page séparée mentionnant vos nom et prénom, votre appartenance
administrative, votre adresse postale, votre statut, votre courriel et le titre
de votre contribution.
Les soumissions seront envoyées par courrier électronique à
colloque.adjectifsuniv-lille3.fr de préférence au format .pdf, et à défaut aux
formats .rtf ou .doc (veillez à envoyer le résumé et la page où figurent les
renseignements personnels sous des fichiers attachés distincts, le premier étant
nommé nom.abstract.pdf et le second nom.perso.pdf, où ''nom'' est le nom de
l'auteur de l'article ou de l'auteur qui sert de contact en cas d'auteurs
multiples). Délai de rigueur : 15 février 2007. (On acceptera un seul résumé à
titre de seul auteur et un en collaboration.)
S'il vous est impossible de faire une soumission électronique, vous pouvez
envoyer 2 copies papier du résumé et de la page comportant les renseignements
personnels à l'adresse suivante avant le 15 février 2004 (date limite de
réception) :
