Meeting Description:

Chronos 9 – International Conference on Tense, Aspect and Modality.
University of Paris 7, 2 – 4 September 2009

Chronos is a series of conferences dedicated to current research on the morphology, syntax, semantics, and pragmatics of markers of tense, aspect and modality. The conferences welcome presentations from scholars who approach linguistic research from different perspectives and embrace different theoretical frameworks.

Final Call for Papers Call Deadline: 31-May-2009
3rd Call for Papers

Important Notice: extended deadline for submissions, 31. May 2009

Main Session: morphology, syntax, semantics, and pragmatics of markers of tense, aspect and modality.

Parasession: Endangered & less-documented languages.

Special associated workshop: Scalar structure and event structure

The thematic parasession of Chronos 2009 will be dedicated to the tense/aspect/modality systems of endangered and less-documented languages. Not only do such languages often face a serious danger of rapid extinction; they are also a relatively intact source of fecund data, which might shed some new light on the empirical generalizations and theoretical/formal constructs currently prevalent within the community - indeed, these have generally been elaborated through observations bearing on a handful of well-documented languages.

In addition to this special theme, Chronos 2009 will also host a workshop dedicated to the relationship between scalar structure and event structure (co-organized by U. Paris 7 and U. Chicago): this particular empirical field has proved very fruitful over the past few years, by nourishing a wealth of new formal and theoretical approaches to aspectual meaning. The Chronos 2009 host workshop will constitute a unique opportunity of bringing together and confronting different recent approaches to the connection between aspect and scalarity.

Submissions to the conference are not restricted to the special topics here listed. We welcome proposals relating to any area in the linguistics of tense, aspect and modality.

Invited Speakers:
- Alan Dench, University of Western Australia
- Chris Kennedy, University of Chicago
- Denis Creissels, Université de Lyon 2
- Leora Bar El, University of Montana
- Martina Faller, University of Manchester

Submission Guidelines:
Abstracts are invited for 20-minute presentations (plus 10 minutes for discussion). All presentations will be delivered in French or in English.

They should be no longer than two pages in length using 1 inch/2.5 cm margins on all sides and in 12pt font size (Times New Roman preferred). Any non-standard fonts should be embedded in the PDF document. Submissions are limited to one individual and one joint abstract per author.
