Linguistic Field(s): Phonology; Syntax

Meeting Description:

'Parallel Domains: Locality in Syntax & Phonology and the Representation of
Constituency' is a workshop in honor of the work of Jean-Roger Vergnaud.
Its theoretical goal is to explore fundamental questions across both syntax
and phonology, which broadly include issues of locality, movement,
reconstruction, multidominance, (anti-)symmetry, agreement, and cyclic
applications in both domains.

Invited Speakers:

Noam Chomsky, Louis Goldstein, Morris Halle, Joost Kremers, Dominique
Sportiche
