Linguistic Field(s): Discipline of Linguistics

Call Deadline: 20-Oct-2009

Meeting Description:

Laurence Horn's comprehensive and essential work A Natural History of Negation
(1989) reveals the interest on negation that has prevailed for the last 2000
years among linguists, and logicians and philosophers as well. Negation is still
an open realm of study in linguistics, if only given recent methods of data
investigation (research via corpora), or though the comparison of various
theories (for instance, formal versus functional), or the question of the
respective explanatory roles of syntax, semantics and pragmatics.

2nd Call for Papers

The aim of this conference is thus to bring together works pertaining to
negation, as well as anything related to opposition, contradiction and what one
could name « contra-dicting » and refutation. Those papers will preferably bear
on as many languages as possible and will cover as many fields of linguistics as
possible. A few guiding lines are laid out below but do not intend to be
a) lexical morphology
b) lexical semantics
c) Intra and interpropositional syntax, macrosyntax
d) Pragmatics and discourse analysis

Submission abstracts must be relatively expanded (2,5 to 3 pages, including
bibliography). They must be anonymous. Each abstract will be reviewed by two

The talks may bear on any language, and pertain to synchrony or diachrony.
The proposals (in Word, OpenOffice, or PDF files) are to be submitted on the Web
