Linguistic Field(s): Language Acquisition; Semantics; Syntax; Typology

Call Deadline: 25-Nov-2012

Meeting Description:

Conférences invitées / Invited speakers:

Daniel Büring (Universität Wien)
Östen Dahl (Stockholm)

The workshop is organised by the project 'Calculating Nominal Reference: Languages with and without Articles' of the Fédération Typologie et Universaux du Langage (CNRS FRE 2559) which aims to bring together researchers working on definiteness and nominal reference from a perspective of:

L1 and L2 language acquisition
Sign language linguistics
Formal syntax and semantics

2nd Call for Papers:

We encourage submissions exploring the linguistic means used to establish the reference of a nominal expression, including, but not limited to, the following questions:

- What is the role of definite and indefinite articles in establishing the reference of the DP?
- How are the effects of definite and indefinite articles achieved in languages that lack those articles?
- What are the semantic distinctions involved in languages that distinguish two distinct definite articles (see Ebert 1970, Löbner 1985 and much subsequent literature) or two indefinite articles (see von Heusinger, Klaus & Klein, Udo (to appear) The Distribution of two Indefinite Articles in Uzbek and references cited there).
- What is the difference between definite and demonstrative determiners?

We welcome work on formal syntax and semantics, L1 and L2 acquisition of (in)definiteness in spoken and sign languages.

We invite submissions for 25-minute presentations (plus ten-minute discussions).

Abstracts should be at most 2 pages in length (including examples and references) written in French or English.

Abstracts must be anonymous and should be sent by email (plain ASCII, rtf, ps or pdf) to:

pcabredo //AT// univ-paris8.fr

Please write the (first) author's name plus the word 'abstract' in the subject line of your message (e.g., 'Dupont abstract'), and include author name(s), affiliation, contact information and the title of the abstract in the body of the email. For co-authored papers indicate the email address that we should use for correspondence.
