Call For Papers

On March 25-26, 2011, The Leiden University Centre for Linguistics will
host a two-day workshop on 'The construction grammar of Dutch', in
collaboration with the Ghent University Linguistics Department.

The workshop will bring together specialists in various domains of Dutch
grammar, using different approaches or formalisms that fall under the
general rubric of construction-based grammar, with the aim of providing an
overview of current research into aspects of the Dutch constructicon and of
stimulating discussion between different (broadly) constructionist
approaches. Papers will deal with present-day standard Dutch as well as
earlier stages of the language and/or other present-day varieties. The
workshop organizers are Ronny Boogaart, Timothy Colleman, and Gijsbert
Rutten.

Confirmed speakers include Rens Bod, Geert Booij, Ad Foolen, Dirk
Geeraerts et al., Freek Van de Velde, Ton van der Wouden, and Arie
Verhagen. In addition, there will be an invited talk by William Croft on recent
theoretical advances in construction grammar. The workshop languages are
English and Dutch.

As there is a small number of open slots in the programme, we invite
proposals for 20-minute talks on any aspect of Dutch grammar addressed
from a construction-based perspective. Papers with a contrastive focus are
welcome, too, as are papers with a more general theoretical and/or
methodological focus, provided they deal with issues directly relevant to the
study of Dutch.

Abstracts should reach us by December 15, 2010. Send your abstract, in
Dutch or in English, to CxGDutchgmail.com, as an e-mail attachment in .rtf
or .pdf format. Abstracts should not exceed 400 words (not including
references and figures or tables). Notification of acceptance will be given by
January 15, 2011.
