Call for Papers
Variation in Datives: a Micro-comparative Perspective
Deadline Extension: 31 March, 2010
The European research network Edisyn and the Basque research group Basdisyn
jointly organize the 4th European Dialect Syntax Meeting in Donostia/San
Sebastián, June 21-23, 2010, as part of the XXII European Summer Courses of the
University of the Basque Country.
The network is a meeting point for research done in the area of syntactic
variation in dialectal continua, and gathers researchers from all across
Europe. This year, the meeting will include, together with reporting sessions
involving the projects operating under the network, a thematic one open to all
linguists working on syntactic microvariation at the dialectal level. The
thematic session will be devoted to dative case and agreement. We therefore
invite original contributions related to any of the following issues:
- Aspectual and thematic overlap of dative marking (theta-roles linked to
datives, complementarity among datives and (other) adpositions, syncretism in
clitic/agreement paradigms, etc.)
- Restrictions on dative arguments (animacy, definiteness, etc.)
- Datives in valency-augmenting constructions (causatives and others)
- Dative-, benefactive- and locative-shifts, as well as external possessors.
- Dative subjects
- Datives in the nominal domain (internal possessor datives, DP-internal
restrictions on datives, etc.)
- Datives in the PP-domain (selectional relations between adpositions and DAT
- Alternations in case marking (DAT/NOM or ABS, DAT/ACC or ABS, DAT/GEN, etc.)
- Datives in agreement (among others, featural specification -animacy,
definiteness, etc.- of dative markers; optionality of dative agreement/clitic
doubling; agreement-restrictions involving datives plus other arguments -Person
Case Constraint or similar-; case and agreement mismatches; canonical and
non-canonical agreement with datives)
Abstracts should be sent in PDF or Word format to Ane Berro (ane.berroehu.es).
They should not exceed one page, with an optional additional page for examples
and references. Submissions should be anonymous. Contact details (name,
affiliation and e-mail) along with the title of the talk should be included in
the body of the e-mail.
Language of the workshop: English.
New deadline for submission of abstracts is March 31 2010.
Notification of acceptance by April 30th 2010.
