Workshop Descriptions: The relationship between phrase structure configurations
and grammatical relations (or functions) like 'subject', 'direct object',
'indirect object', etc. is not a simple one. Even within a single language,
subject and object properties might not be confined to consistent structural
configurations, but rather be 'shared' by different configurations. For example,
in English the postposed NP (or DP) in 'there-insertion' sentences behaves in
some ways, but not all ways, like a subject and a topicalized post-verbal NP
behaves in some ways, but not all ways, like a direct object. In other languages
(e. g. those of the Austronesian family) it is in general very difficult to
attach grammatical relation labels consistently to particular structures.
Furthermore, languages differ in terms of which syntactic categories partake in
a particular grammatical relation (e. g. in some languages a subject must be an
NP/DP, while in others a wide variety of categories can take the subject role).

The purpose of this workshop is to explore all aspects of the relationship
between grammatical forms and grammatical relations. We invite abstracts for 30
minute presentations that address any empirical or theoretical issues relevant
to this problem, from any theoretical perspective.

Abstract Submission: Abstracts should be submitted electronically to the
organizers by March 30, 2006: to Jong-Bok Kim
(jongbokkhu.ac.kr or jongbokkimgmail.com).
