Linguistic Field(s): General Linguistics

Meeting Description:

The University of Connecticut will host the 44th annual meeting of the North East Linguistic Society on October 18-20, 2013.

In addition to the general session, there will be a special session called Locality across Domains. The notion of locality has played a prominent role throughout the development of linguistic theories and continues to do so today. The special session will explore locality restrictions in different modules of the grammar, and how these play in to the interfaces between them.

The invited speakers will be:

David Embick (UPenn)
Lisa Travis (McGill)
Colin Phillips (Maryland)
