Linguistic Field(s): Semantics; Typology

Meeting Description:

In recent years, we have witnessed on the one hand an increased interest in cross-linguistic data in formal semantic studies, and on the other hand an increased concern for semantic issues in language typology. However, there are still only few studies which combine semantic and typological research for a particular semantic domain (such as the papers in Bach et al. (1995) on quantification and Smith (1997) on aspect).

This workshop focuses specifically on the domain of Tense, Aspect, and Mood/Modality and it aims to bring together formal semanticists with a cross-linguistic perspective or working on lesser-known languages, and typologists interested in semantic theory, to discuss semantic variation in this domain.
Organizers: Lotte Hogeweg, Helen de Hoop, Andrej Malchukov, Joost Zwarts
