Call for Papers:
We welcome any descriptive, theoretical, comparative or historical perspective, as long as one or more of the following topics is addressed:
- Theory: the nature of the network of relationships between evidential categories, and the descriptors that are needed to accurately map these relationships.
- Description: fresh data or novel analyses that throw a new light on theoretical and typological assumptions about evidentiality.
- Criteria: rigorous syntactic, morphological, and semantic tests for describing the differences between evidential categories.
- Evidential systems: the nature of the interaction of various evidential markers within a given evidential system.
- Beyond evidentiality: the relationships of evidentials with other linguistic categories such as tense, aspect, and modality.
We invite abstracts for talks on any of the topic areas above. Talks are 30 minutes long: 20 mins for presentation, and 10 mins for discussion. Abstracts should not exceed two pages, including data and references, and have at least 11-point font on either A4 or letter paper with one-inch (2.5cm) margins. Abstracts must be anonymous and submissions are limited to 2 per author, at least one of which is co-authored.
We are accepting abstracts only through the Easychair abstract submission system, which can be found at:
