Meeting Description:

The Ghent University CONTRAGRAM research team is proud to announce an International Conference on Verb Typologies to be held at Ghent, 5-7 February 2009. The meeting is organized in collaboration with the French, English and Dutch department of Ghent University and is to be positioned against the larger background of the research project Meaning in between structure and the lexicon. Papers presented will be from both a theoretical as well as a practical point of view with the goal of achieving cross-fertilization and new insights on verb typologies.

Call for Papers

Abstracts are invited for 30-minute talks (20'+10') in English on any topic related to the semantics, morphosyntax, or typology of verbs, especially from a cross-linguistic perspective. We invite papers addressing general typological questions as well as papers taking the viewpoint of one (or more) particular language(s), preferably Germanic or Romance languages.
We particularly welcome papers on the following topics:
- (new) reflections on verb classifications
- contrastive analysis of verbs, verb classes and typologies
- corpus-based (cross-linguistic) studies on verbs and verb classes
- theoretically inspired papers focusing on classification systems and criteria (and related terminology), on the relation between verb classes and polysemy
- papers exploring the tension between syntax, semantics and lexicon with respect to the verbal lexicon (see conference call)

Abstracts should have between 500 and 800 words (exclusive of references) and should state research questions, approach, method, data and results.
They can be sent to verbtypology2009ugent.be. Abstracts will be anonymously reviewed.

The deadline for the submission of abstracts is 1 June 2008. Notification of acceptance will be given by 31 August 2008.

The body of your email message should include your name, affiliation and contact information.

More information will periodically appear on the Conference website which will be launched shortly:
