Linguistic Field(s): Semantics

Meeting Description:

SULA (The Semantics of Under-represented Languages in the Americas) brings
together researchers working on languages or dialects spoken in the Americas
which do not have an established tradition of work in formal semantics. One of
the main strengths of this event is that research presented at it, typically
involves primary fieldwork or experimentation as well as high-level theoretical
analysis. The study of non-Indoeuropean languages in recent years has led to a
rethinking of assumptions in formal semantics and the analysis of phenomena not
studied before from a formal point of view. SULA has been one of the catalysts
for the rapid expansion of cross-linguistic formal semantics within linguistics.

The invited speakers at SULA 6 are:

Suzi Lima (University of Massachusetts, Amherst)
Sarah Murray (Cornell University)
Tyler Peterson (Universiteit Leiden)
Christian Rathmann (Universitaet Hamburg)
Francisco Santiago (The Ulwa Language Project, Karawala, Nicaragua)
Philippe Schlenker (Institut Jean-Nicod)

SULA 6 is organized by Martina Faller and Andrew Koontz-Garboden at the
Department of Linguistics and English Language at The University of Manchester.
