Workshop on Aspect and Argument Structure of Adjectives and Participles (WAASAP!)
Dates: 22-23 June 2012
Venue: University of Greenwich, London (UK)
Organizers: María J. Arche, Antonio Fábregas, Rafael Marín
This workshop is the first one of a series about aspect and argument structure across categories and it is dedicated to adjectives and participles.
Professor Timothy Stowell (University of California Los Angeles)
Dr Andrew Koontz-Garboden (University of Manchester)
In the past few years there has been an important body of literature about the relationship between Aspect and Argument Structure (Borer 2005; Ramchand 2008; Ritter&Rosen 2000, 2005; Rothstein 2008). The vast majority of studies have concentrated on verbs and also, in a minor degree, on (deverbal) nouns. However, much less is known in this respect about adjectives and participles. In this workshop we want to fill this gap by gathering researchers working on different aspects of Argument Structure and Aspect of adjectives and participles. Our aim is to bring together researchers from different approaches to discuss the articulation of the syntax, semantics and morphology of this part of the grammar in order to identify points of consensus and new venues for research.

This event is free of charge.
