Linguistic Field(s): Linguistic Theories

Meeting Description:

This two-day workshop is organized by the Interdisciplinary Centre 'European
Languages - Structures - Development - Comparison (ZEUS) at the Freie
Universitaet of Berlin. It aims at bringing together a number of leading
scholars as well as young researchers either within new generative approaches
(minimalism, cartography, among others) or constructional approaches. In
accordance with the main goals of our Interdisciplinary Centre, speakers will be
guided by the question if and why the framework presented is particularly
appropriate for (i) language comparison, and/or (ii) language change. In the
last part of the workshop, a discussion panel is planned in which workshop
participants and invited guests will extend the dialogue to language acquisition
and cognitive science / neuroscience.

We are pleased to announce the following contributions:

Adele Goldberg (keynote): The Constructionist Approach to Cross-
linguistic and Language Specific Generalizations

Richard Kayne (keynote): TBA

Alexander Bergs: Looking at the Future: Construction Grammar and Language Change

Ora Matushansky: The Remarkable Case of Predicates

Gereon Müller: On the constructional residue of rule-based grammars

Stefan Müller: Towards a Realistic Theory of Grammar

Anatol Stefanowitsch: On the rule-based residue of construction-based grammars

Round Table Guests: Helen Leuninger, Michael Tomasello, Juergen Weissenborn,

Chair: Gisela Klann-Delius.
