2nd Call for Papers:
Abstracts are invited for the International Workshop on Nominalization in the Languages of the Americas, to be held at Pontificia Universidad Católica del Perú (PUCP), on 28-30th August 2014. We are interested in studies on nominalization from different perspectives, including both functional and formal approaches and dealing with languages of different areas/families of the Americas. Synchronic, diachronic, areal, and typological studies are equally welcome. Possible topics include:
Form of Nominalizations:
- Lexical and grammatical nominalizations
- Event nominalizations and argument nominalizations
- V-based and N-based nominalizations
- Nominalization morphology and nominalization markers
- Internal and external syntax of nominalizations (to
- What extent are they nominal externally and verbal
Use/function of nominalizations:
- NP-use (referential function)
- Modification-use (relativization, N-complementation and V-complementation, adverbials, clause chaining)
- Pragmaticization of nominalizations
- Desubordination/insubordination (i.e. nominalizations taking on sentential functions)
Being a treasure trove of nominalizations with a rich inventory of structures and varied usage patterns, South America is a natural focus of the workshop, but we strongly encourage the participation of linguists working on both Central and North American languages.
Publication of a volume based on the studies presented in the workshop is planned, similar to Nominalization in Asian Languages: Diachronic and Typological Perspectives edited by Foong Ha Yap, Karen Grunow-Hårsta and Janick Wrona (2011).
One-page abstracts should be sent to nominalizationpucpgmail.com.
Abstract deadline: March 31, 2014.
This is the first of the international workshops supported and planned biennially by PUCP’s recently launched Digital Archive of Peruvian Languages and is part of a research project funded by PUCP’s Office for the Promotion of Research (Dirección de Gestión de la Investigación).
