Meeting Description:

The vitality of research on word classes is a major aspect of current linguistics in several of its articulations. It is likely and desirable that new horizons open and that the various perspectives interlace to increase our knowledge in this field of research.

In this framework, the TRIPLE Laboratory at Roma Tre University organizes a 3-day International Conference on 'Word Classes' with the following goals:

- Fostering a balanced evaluation of what is being done in the field of Word Classes research;
- Gathering and discussing original pieces of research;
- Fostering the links between distinct disciplines concerned with the field.

Keynote Speakers:

-Christian Lehmann (Universität Erfurt)
-Alessandro Lenci (Universit? di Pisa)
-Beth Levin (Stanford University)
