Meeting Description:

International Workshop on Nominalization in the Languages of the Americas,
to be held at Pontificia Universidad Católica del Perú (PUCP), on 28-30
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.

Call for Papers:

Abstracts are invited for the International Workshop on Nominalization in
the Languages of the Americas. 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
internally?)

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).
