Meeting Description:

The School of Language Sciences, English and Foreign Languages University (Hyderabad) will be holding a workshop on complex predicates in South Asian languages, on 20-21 January 2012.

Important work is currently being done on the analysis of verb classes and the syntax of verbal projections especially in the framework of First Phase syntax (Gillian Ramchand 2008). Some of the areas it has been applied to are the complex predicates in Persian, causativization in Hindi/Urdu, resultatives and verb-particle constructions in English etc. This workshop will focus on understanding complex predicates in South Asian languages in the new frameworks that are currently evolving.

Invited Speakers (confirmed):

Gillian Ramchand
Probal Dasgupta
Tanmoy Bhattacharya
M.T. Hany Babu

Call for Papers:

We invite abstracts for 40 minute slots on topics pertaining to complex predicates, as manifested in languages spoken in South Asia and its diaspora.

We also plan to publish a volume of selected papers from the conference.

Format and Submission Guidelines:

Submit your abstracts here:


Abstracts should be no more than 2 pages long (a4 or US letter-sized), in 11 pt. font, with 1-inch/2.5-cm margins. This includes all data (which can be interspersed throughout the text), and references. All abstracts should be submitted as PDF files.

Submissions should be anonymous and not reveal the identity of the author(s) in any form (e.g., references, file name of the abstract). Submissions are limited to one single-authored abstract and one joint-authored abstract per person.
