Relative clauses are complex constructions grammatically, yet very frequent and highly productive crosslinguistically. Understanding their properties is, thus, fundamental for theories of grammar, linguistic typology, language acquisition and processing. Many of their structural and interpretive properties have now been investigated and there is a growing body of work on their acquisition and processing. However, there have been insufficient efforts to integrate insights and results across different subdisciplines. Building on the success of the preparatory ''Workshop on the Typology, Acquisition and Processing of Relative Clauses'' (Leipzig 2005, Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Anthropology), the conference aims to bring together researchers investigating relative clauses from different perspectives: linguistic typology, grammatical theory, processing, first and second language acquisition, computational/corpus linguistics and historical linguistics. There is currently considerable interest in relative clauses throughout the language sciences and we expect contributions from all relevant subfields. We especially encourage paper submissions on the following topics:


-Head internal relative clauses.
-Relative clauses in languages like Japanese where the relative clause is closely related to other types of prenominal modification.
-Relative clauses in 1st language acquisition.
-Relative clauses in 2nd language acquisition from speakers with varying L1s.
-Relative clauses in Scandinavian languages.
-Resumption in relative clauses.
-Processing of relative clauses, in particular, in different language types.
-Production models of relative clauses.
-Comprehension models of relative clauses.

Please note that, thanks to an award from the University of Cambridge Scandinavian Studies Fund, registration fees will be waived for papers on Scandinavian languages.
