General Session on
Parameters in Language Design
2011 Seoul International Conference on Generative Grammar will be held at Sogang University, Seoul, Korea, on August 16 - 19, organized by the Korean Generative Grammar Circle.
While we especially encourage submissions touching on the theme of the general session specified above, equal consideration will be given to papers from all areas of generative grammar, which may include syntactic theory, syntax-semantics interface, syntax-morphology interface, syntax-phonology interface, syntactic acquisition, and others. The conference will consist of the general session, an additional workshop, and a series of lectures from the keynote speaker. The theme of the additional workshop is as follows:
Workshop on Inside and outside of Nominal Projections
We find plenty of instantiations of crosslinguistic variation in nominals: case morphology, word order variation, the numeral and plural morphology, and so on. Recently, Giorgi and Müller (2010) argue that word order variations within nominals can be captured by the reprojection of NP without assuming that D is the head of the nominal projection. On the other hand, Watanabe (2006, 2010) argues for the at least four functional projections above NP to account for the structural diversity of the numeral/classifier combination along the line of Longobardi (2001), but contrary to the argument of Chierchia (1998) and Fukui and Takano (2000). Given Chomsky's (2001) claim that parametric variation is restricted to the lexicon, especially to a narrow category of morphological properties, primarily inflectional, in this workshop we invite papers that deal with the issues concerning the parameterization of noun-related functional categories and the variations in nominals. We also encourage the research on the differences between nominals and clauses and on the interactions between nominals and other sentential categories.
