Meeting Description:

The workshop 'Bare nouns and Genericity' will be held at the Université
Paris Diderot - Laboratoire de Linguistique Formelle - UMR 7110 CNRS on
October 7th-8th, 2010.The workshop is organized by the bilateral project
CAPES/COFECUB 2008-2012 Bare Nouns in Brazilian Portuguese at the
syntax-semantics interface, between the Université Paris Diderot (resp.
Carmen Dobrovie-Sorin) and the Universidade Federal de Santa Catarina
(resp. Roberta Pires de Oliveira). The workshop will consist of about 10
talks by researchers involved in the above-mentioned research project,
while 10 slots will be allocated to selected talks (30 min. + 10 min. for
discussion) by external participants. The goal of the workshop is to increase
the understanding of the structural and referential properties of bare
nominals across languages; we invite submissions of abstracts bearing on
any aspect of the syntax and semantics of BNs, both in a language-specific
and a crosslinguistic perspective.The official languages of the workshop are
English and French.
