Meeting Description:

Subordinators are usually defined as markers which transform an autonomous,
syntactically structured sequence into a dependent unit. The terms traditionally
considered as subordinators belong to various categories and have different
syntactic and semantic properties. Relative pronouns, for instance, are used not
only to embed a clause into another, but have a syntactic function in the
embedded clause. Subordinating conjunctions, while not having a syntactic
function in the embedded clause, convey only a grammatical meaning or express a
semantico-logical relation.

However, the identification of a subordinator or a class of subordinators as
such does not rely on well-defined criteria. This is due not only to their
variety, but also to their frequently ambiguous or polysemous nature (e.g. que,
comme in French, ut, quod in Latin). Likewise, their position in the grammar
depends on the adopted approach: from items which just relate two clauses, to
phrase heads in generative grammars.

This colloquium, organized by the Syntaxe et TAL team of the Laboratoire de
recherche sur le langage (EA 999), aims at contributing to the understanding of

2nd Call for Papers
