Linguistic Field(s): General Linguistics

Language Family(ies): Romance

Meeting Description:

General Sessions (December 8 - 9, 2011): We welcome papers on all (sub-)disciplines of Romance linguistics. Preference will be given to papers that are embedded in well-established theoretical approaches and frameworks.

Invited speakers: Andrea Calabrese, Caterina Donati & Carlo Cecchetto, Maribel Romero, Jason Rothman

Workshop (December 10, 2011): The theme of the workshop is syntactic variation and focuses on the data of Romance languages that can be used to define the position of Romance from a typological perspective ('meso' variation). Preference will be given to papers that address contrastive comparison of syntactic properties with language families outside the Romance family.

Invited speaker: Ricardo Etxepare
