Linguistic Field(s): Semantics

Meeting Description:

SULA (The Semantics of Under-represented Languages in the Americas)
brings together researchers working on languages or dialects spoken in the
Americas which do not have an established tradition of work in formal
semantics. One of the main strengths of this event is that research
presented at it, typically involves primary fieldwork or experimentation as
well as high-level theoretical analysis. The study of non-Indoeuropean
languages in recent years has led to a rethinking of assumptions in formal
semantics and the analysis of phenomena not studied before from a formal
point of view. SULA has been one of the catalysts for the rapid expansion of
cross-linguistic formal semantics within linguistics.

The Invited Speakers at SULA 6 are:

Suzi Lima (University of Massachusetts, Amherst)
Sarah Murray (Cornell University)
Tyler Peterson (Universiteit Leiden)
Christian Rathmann (Universitaet Hamburg)
Francisco Santiago (The Ulwa Language Project, Karawala, Nicaragua)
Philippe Schlenker (Institut Jean-Nicod)

SULA 6 is organized by Martina Faller and Andrew Koontz-Garboden at the
Department of Linguistics and English Language at The University of
Manchester.
