Meeting URL:

Linguistic Field(s): Syntax; Typology

Meeting Description:

In the same spirit as the previous conferences of this series (SWL I - Leipzig
2004, SWL II - Lancaster 2006, and SWL III - Berlin 2008), SWL IV will provide a
forum for linguists working on the syntax of less widely studied languages or
language varieties. Its main purpose is enlarging our knowledge and
understanding of syntactic diversity. Contributions are expected to be
data-driven, and the discussion of theoretical issues is appreciated to the
extent that it helps to elucidate the data and remains understandable to persons
that are not specialists of the relevant theory. All major theoretical
frameworks are equally welcome, and papers that adopt a diachronic or
comparative perspective are also welcome, as well as papers dealing with
morphological or semantic issues, in so far as syntactic issues also play a
major role.

Invited Speakers:

Ekkehard König (Freie Universität Berlin)
Lutz Marten (SOAS, London)
Claire Moyse-Faurie (CNRS-LACITO, Paris)
Fernando Zúñiga (University of Zurich)
