Linguistic Field(s): Syntax
Call Deadline: 08-Apr-2011
On June 18-19, 2011, the University of Victoria will host the Workshop on Syntax of Relative Clauses. This is the seventh in an annual series of SSHRC-funded workshops featuring linguists from across Canada with a shared research interest in the grammatical structure and interpretation of noun phrases.
Relative clauses raise a variety of issues for syntactic theory. The papers in this workshop will centre on three main empirical issues:
I. What is the internal structure of relative clauses?
II. What is the nature of syntactic operations within relative clauses?
III. What is the external distribution of relative clauses?
The workshop will feature research by the following invited speakers (talk titles are preliminary):
Edith Aldridge (University of Washington): Object Relative Clauses in Archaic Chinese
Barbara Citko (University of Washington): Types of Non-appositive Relative Clauses
Henry Davis (University of British Columbia): Wrong-headed Relatives in Salish
Chung-Hye Han (Simon Fraser University): Relative Clauses in Korean
Diane Massam (University of Toronto): Reducing Relatives in Niuean
Eric Mathieu (University of Ottawa): Relative Clauses in Ojibwe and Algonquin
Ileana Paul (University of Western Ontario): Relative Structures in Malagasy
Elizabeth Ritter (University of Calgary): Relative Clauses in Blackfoot
Leslie Saxon (University of Victoria): Relative Clauses Inside and Out: A Study of Tłįchǫ
Andrea Wilhelm (University of Victoria): Relative Clauses in Dëne Sųłiné
Martina Wiltschko (University of British Columbia): What Does it Take to Host a Relative?
Invited Student Presenter:
Sara Johansson (Memorial University of Newfoundland and Labrador): On Algonquian Relative Clause Constructions
