Following the successful NP1 workshop, held in Vigo on 2-3 October 2009, we are pleased to announce the 2nd Vigo-Newcastle-Santiago-Leuven International Workshop on 'The Structure of the Noun Phrase in English – Synchronic and Diachronic Explorations' (NP2), to be held at Newcastle University (UK) on 15 and 16 September 2011.

Call for Papers:
This workshop aims to bring together linguists currently looking at any aspect of the English noun phrase from any point of view (syntactic, pragmatic, structural, functional, textual, descriptive, synchronic or diachronic). We would therefore like to invite presentations concerned with any topic involving NPs, including the following:
- Relationship between NP-internal structure and the clausal function of NPs
- NP types, including binominal phrases, discontinuous NPs and possessive constructions
- Structural representation of NPs and their constituents
- Strategies of premodification, postmodification and complementation in the NP
- Headedness and NPs
- Implications of particular theoretical frameworks for NP structure
- Diachronic, syntactic, cognitive and/or construction-based perspectives on any of the above
Abstracts must be submitted in MS Word or RTF format as an e-mail attachment to h.c.leungncl.ac.uk by 15 April 2011. The e-mail should use the subject header 'NP2 abstract 2011'. Abstracts should be not more than one page in length (single-spaced), including any references. The page should be headed only by the title of the paper and not mention the presenter(s) nor their affiliations or addresses. The accompanying e-mail should include:
(a) Title of the paper
(b) Name(s) of the author(s)
(c) Institutional affiliation(s)
(d) E-mail address(es)
Notification of acceptance will be sent out by 30 April, 2011.
