Linguistic Field(s): Morphology; Semantics; Syntax

Call Deadline: 11-Nov-2010

Meeting Description:

This workshop seeks to host recent work on some of the topics listed below.
The presentations should place emphasis on the value of addressing these
topics from a perspective that integrates different approaches and/or
dimensions of analysis:

- The architecture of the lexicon: proposals for lexical organization
(lexematics, lexical classes and domains, frames, scripts, etc).
- Meaning construction below and above word level: the role of
constructions in Morphology in general, with special focus on word
formation processes, the interaction of constructions and affixes, the
relation between word internal and word external syntax, etc. Meaning
construction above the word level: from phrasal syntax to texts.
- The nature of semantic representations: Cognitive modeling, primes,
logical and/or event structures, qualia, etc.
- The interaction between lexical units and constructions: the (non-)
existence and nature of a lexicon-grammar continuum, lexical-constructional
fusion, semantic and grammatical coercion, etc.
- Layers of meaning and layers of grammar: layering proposals in functional
models vs. form-meaning pairings.
- Whether linguistic processes attested in one domain of linguistic inquiry
are active-and, if so, to what extent--in other domains (cf. the equipollence
hypothesis in the Lexical Constructional Model).
- The explanatory value of postulating semantic and/or pragmatic
dimensions of meaning, with special emphasis on the communicative
function(s) of lexical items and the constructions with which they fuse.
- Principles and constraints in meaning construction and interpretation: e.g.
conceptual compatibility between lexical and constructional structure,
metaphor and metonymy as possible constraining factors on grammar.

Call For Papers
