Linguistic Field(s): Semantics; Syntax
Call Deadline: 15-Apr-2011
MOSS in this format shall take place for the second time. Our young
conference is a descendant of two separate conferences that took place in
Moscow earlier, the Formal Semantics in Moscow (FSiM) workshop and the
Syntactic Structures conference. MOSS's aim is to bring together people
working within different theoretical frameworks and to encourage
syntacticians and semanticists to have more substantial interaction with
each other. The speakers should be prepared to give a talk to an audience
that might not share all of their theoretical assumptions. Young researchers
and students are especially welcome to apply.
Call for Papers
The MOSS conference this year will consist of three sessions: a (mostly)
syntax session, a (mostly) semantics session, and also a separate thematic
session devoted to discourse particles and related phenomena.
The syntactic part of the conference is not limited to any particular
framework or any particular topic. We invite papers in syntactic typology and
functional syntax as well as in formal syntax, and theoretically and
typologically oriented descriptive papers.
The semantic part is not limited to any particular view on the general
architecture of the grammar (e.g., direct compositionality, LF semantics,
etc.) We invite papers in formal semantics and formal pragmatics, especially
welcoming those which stress the interaction of semantics with syntax and
the consequences of semantic data and analyses on the choice between
different syntactic frameworks.
