Meeting Description:

This workshop hosted by LUCL in Leiden (The Netherlands) aims to provide a forum for anyone interested in Welsh syntax. Confirmed invited speakers include prof. Ian Roberts and dr. David Willis (Cambridge University) delivering keynote lectures about the structure of the left periphery in Welsh, followed by ample time for discussion and input from the audience.

Call for Papers:

We welcome abstracts for papers dealing with any topic in Welsh syntax (not just the left periphery!). The analysis can be theoretic and/or data-oriented, from either a synchronic or diachronic perspective (or both). Cross-linguistic comparisons with Welsh syntax will also be taken into consideration.

Abstracts (in English) should be sent to m.meelenhum.leidenuniv.nl. The workshop will have an informal character, but the guideline for presentations will be 30 minutes, followed by 15 minutes of discussion. The deadline for abstracts is 15 May 2014. Applicants will be notified of acceptance of their paper in June 2014.
