Linguistic Field(s): Semantics
Call Deadline: 15-Mar-2011
This meeting focuses on how the temporal structure of discourse is built out
of linguistic and world knowledge cues, a topic of intense research for the
past couple of decades. How do grammatical elements or systems - such as
tense, aspect, Aktionsart, auxiliary verbs, lexical predicates (like last or date
back to), time adjuncts, and discourse connectives - interact to determine
temporal information processing in natural languages? How does world
knowledge - in combination with the above-mentioned grammatical elements
or systems - affect the semantic interpretation? Furthermore, how does
mood/modality interact with temporal information (e.g. in factual,
counterfactual or hypothetical structures)? Both language-specific and
contrastive studies focusing on these different types of interactions - at the
sentence or at the discourse level - are welcome.
