Call Deadline: 15-Jan-2014

Meeting Description:

After the success of the two previous CamCoS conferences (see: http://www-falcon.csx.cam.ac.uk/site/RECOS/conference), we are happy to announce that CamCoS 3 is going to take place on 8-10 May 2014.

The first half day will feature talks by Cambridge-based researchers, followed by a full-day general session on comparative generative syntax. The final day of the conference will feature a themed session with invited speakers on the topic of variation in the morphophonological, morphosyntactic and morphosemantic domains. In relation to the themed session, the central question we would like to address is to what extent it is possible to provide a formal account of cross-linguistic variation in the domain of morphology. Please see the conference website (http://www-falcon.csx.cam.ac.uk/site/RECOS/conference/camcos-3/camcos3-info) for more specific details of the types of questions we would like to consider in this connection.

The invited speakers for CamCoS 3 are:

Iris Berent (Northeastern University)
Phil Branigan (Memorial University)
Dunstan Brown (University of York)
Nigel Duffield (Konan University)
Daniel Harbour (Queen Mary, University of London) - TBC
Martina Wiltschko (University of British Columbia)

Call for Papers:

For the general comparative syntax session, we invite abstracts for 30-minute presentations on any topic in comparative generative syntax as well as the topics outlined above. We particularly welcome papers explicitly addressing parametric issues and/or offering comparative analyses (synchronic or diachronic) of previously un(der)studied languages and/or phenomena, and papers concerned with ''bigger picture'' questions, such as what insights modern comparative generative syntax might offer in relation to linguistic typology and syntax-interface mappings.

We also encourage papers concerned with methodologies for modern comparative generative syntax. Abstracts focusing on this year's ''morpho''-centered theme are also very welcome for this session.

Anonymous abstracts should not exceed two pages (12-point Times New Roman font, with single spacing and margins of at least 2.54cm/1 inch), including examples and references. They should be uploaded in PDF format via EasyAbstracts (http://linguistlist.org/easyabs/camcos3). The submission deadline is Wednesday, 15 January 2014.

Please see the conference and project website (http://www-falcon.csx.cam.ac.uk/site/RECOS/) or contact Theresa Biberauer (mtb23cam.ac.uk) for more information.
