Meeting Description:

Workshop 'Evolution of Semantic Structure'
Workshop organized as part of Evolang 8 at Utrecht University, see:

Workshop Organizers: Henriëtte de Swart (Utrecht University) and Marieke
Schouwstra (Utrecht University)
Invited speaker: Jim Hurford (Edinburgh)

Language is used to communicate thoughts. And the thoughts that are communicated
in modern human language are quite sophisticated. How did this
come about? What do the semantic structures we express in our languages have to
do with the cognitive structures we have in our minds? And what is the
evolutionary history of these structures?

Call for Papers

In this workshop, our aim is to find answers to these questions, based on data
or models from various disciplines, including linguistics, cognitive science,
philosophy and computer science. We invite 2-page abstracts fitting in with the
general theme of 'the evolution of semantic structure'. We intend to collect
papers into a special issue for a journal. Please send abstracts to
M.Schouwstrauu.nl by Sunday January 31, 2010.
