Linguistic Field(s): Discourse Analysis; Language Acquisition; Pragmatics; Semantics; Syntax

Subject Language(s): Spanish

Meeting Description:

The workshop seeks to bring together researchers working on different aspects of the ‘ser/estar’ distinction, in particular those related to the lexicon-syntax and syntax-semantics-pragmatics interfaces, mainly from a formal perspective. It will touch upon issues such as the relevance of the individual/stage level distinction in the distribution of copular verbs; aspectual coercion; aspectual composition; syntactic differences between copular verbs; information structure of predications with ‘ser’ and ‘estar’; truth and non-truth conditional meaning of copular verbs.
