Message 2: Workshop on Optionality: Final Call

 PLEASE POST

 - FINAL CALL FOR PAPERS - FINAL CALL FOR PAPERS -

 The Research Institute for Language and Speech (OTS),
 Utrecht University,
 organizes a.....

 Workshop on Optionality

 to be held on
 September 1-2, 1995.

 Keynote speakers:
 Jane Grimshaw (Rutgers)
 Tony Kroch (Penn)
 Tanya Reinhart (Tel Aviv/Utrecht)
 Edwin Williams (Princeton)

Given a general notion of economy, free word order as well as other
optional phenomena are problematic in current linguistic theory.
Nevertheless, optionality is widely attested in natural language, not only
synchronically, but also diachronically and in language acquisition. We
would therefore like to invite papers that deal with the theoretical
problem of optionality from either of these perspectives.

In addition to 4 (invited) keynote talks, we have 12 slots for 35 min.
papers. Please send 5 copies of an anonymous two-page abstract, one
camera-ready version and a 3x5" card with name(s) of author(s), title of
paper, affiliation, phone number and e-mail address to:

 Workshop on Optionality,
 Research Institute for Language and Speech (OTS),
 Utrecht University,
 Trans 10,
 3512 JK Utrecht,
 Netherlands.

We will be able to (partially) reimburse speakers. The
deadline for submissions is MAY 1, 1995. Submissions by e-mail
or fax will not be accepted.
