Invited Speakers:

Jakub Dotlacil (Leiden)

Call for Papers:

We encourage submissions exploring the linguistic means used to establish distributive dependencies, including, but not limited to, the following questions:

- The syntax and semantics of markers of distributive keys (e.g. distributive quantifiers) or distributive shares (e.g. Hungarian reduplicated numerals)
- Multiplication effects for indefinite singulars (e.g. He eats a sandwich for breakfast.)
- Distribution effects for plurals (e.g. dependent plurals: Here professors wear ties.)
- Distribution effects over times (e.g. A lot of people have been dying of this disease lately)

We welcome work on formal syntax and semantics, on distributive dependencies (distributivity and co-distributivity) 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: pcabredoniv-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.
