Meeting Description:

(Non-)Commitment ((non-)prise en charge in French) are notions which are fairly
often used in the analysis of certain types of linguistic phenomena but are
hardly ever the subject of explicit investigation in their own right. This
conference welcomes theoretical and empirical contributions within both the
French and the Anglo-American linguistic tradition addressing the issue in its
own right or in terms of its role in different linguistic phenomena.

International Conference La notion de prise en charge en linguistique/The

Organised by Patrick Dendale (Antwerp University), Danielle Coltier (Université
