Meeting Description:

Vocatives are classified either in purely formal terms (vocative case) as part
of the 'language system', or as functional structures manifesting themselves in
'language use' only. Although languages differ in terms of usage conditions and
availability of morphological marking, vocatives are amongst the most basic and
also most early acquired structures of language. While the focus of research
clearly lies on languages with morphologically marked vocative, syntactic
(non-)integration, pragmatic factors, and the emergence and decline of vocative
forms are among the less studied aspects.
