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.
