International Conference on Processing Head-final Structures

Date: 21-Sep-2007 - 22-Sep-2007
Location: Rochester, New York, USA
Contact: Hiroko Yamashita
Contact Email: hxygslrit.edu
Meeting URL: http://www.rit.edu/~hfconf/

Linguistic Field(s): Psycholinguistics

Meeting Description:

Studying the processing of head-final structures and making comparisons to that
of head-initial structures are critical for researchers to gain deeper insights
into how humans are able to process different types of information observed in
different types of languages. The current conference will promote dialogue and
interchange among scholars working on cutting-edge research on head-final
structures in a wide range of languages. Cross-linguistic findings from
languages with prominent head-final structures will be brought together and
compared, including the comparisons among head-final languages, and those with
head-initial languages such as English. The conference will deal with language
processing and production by a wide range of speakers - from adults to children,
as native speakers and as speakers of a foreign language. It will also be a
place for exchanging new methodologies, examining language-specific issues, and
helping to determine a research agenda for the next several years.
