Workshop on Languages with and without Articles/ Atelier sur les Langues avec et sans Articles

Invited speaker: Tania Ionin (University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign)

The workshop is organised by the project 'Calcul de la Référence Nominale: Langues avec et sans Articles' of the Fédération Typologie et Universaux du Langage (CNRS RRE 2559) which brings together researchers in L1 and L2 language acquisition, sign language linguistics and comparative syntax and semantics.

We gratefully acknowledge the support of:

- The project 'Calcul de la référence nominale: langues avec et sans articles' of the Fédération Typologie et Universaux du Langage (CNRS FRE 2559)
- The research lab Structures formelles du langage (UMR 7023 CNRS/ Paris 8)

Organizing Committee:

Group) Anne Zribi-Hertz (Paris 8/UMR 7023)

Call for Papers:

Date limite de soumission / Call ddl: December 1, 2010.

We encourage submissions exploring the linguistic means used to establish the reference of a nominal expression, focusing on the following questions:

-What is the role of definite and indefinite articles in establishing the reference of the DP?
- How are the effects of definite and indefinite articles achieved in languages that lack those articles?

We invite submissions for 25-minute presentations (plus ten-minute discussions). Abstracts should be at most 2 pages in length (including examples and references) written in French or English.

Abstracts must be anonymous and should be sent by e-mail (plain ASCII, rtf, ps or pdf) to: pcabredo //AT// univ-paris8.fr

Please write the (first) author's name plus the word 'abstract' in the subject line of your message (e.g., 'Dupont abstract'), and include author name(s), affiliation, contact information and the title of the abstract in the body of the email. For co-authored papers indicate the email address that we should use for correspondence.

Abstracts should reach us by December 1, 2010.
