Meeting Description:

The workshop brings together researchers representing major language families in Europe to describe semantic complementizer functions as well as those phenomena on which semantic complementizer functions may be assumed to have a direct descriptive or explanatory impact: complementizer systems, diachrony of complementizers, complementizer omission, and complementizer combination.
