 Call for Papers

 Workshop on
 STRUCTURE AND CONSTITUENCY IN
 NATIVE AMERICAN LANGUAGES

 To be held at
 The University of Manitoba
 March 29th - 31st, 1996


Invited Speakers: Leslie Saxon (Belcourt Lecture)
 Rose-Marie Dechaine
 Martha McGinnis

We invite papers on specific topics which speak to general
questions of structure and constituency in the analysis of native
languages of North and South America. While papers should speak
to structure and constituency, we hope that contributions will
vary w.r.t. the kinds of evidence they explore. Individual
papers might address questions in, for example, such areas as:
 - the inventory of lexical and functional categories
 - the projection of lexical and functional categories
 - the analysis and formal treatment of syntactic or
 semantic relations in syntax and morpho-syntax
 - the division of labour between syntax and morpho-syntax
 - the interface between syntax and morpho-syntax
 - structural restrictions on syntactic or semantic
 relations in syntax and morpho-syntax

Abstracts should be no longer than 1 page (a second page with
references and extra examples may be included). Abstracts should
be submitted in 5 copies: 1 camera-ready copy with the author's
name, and 4 anonymous copies. A 3x5 card giving the title of the
paper and the author's name, address, affiliation, phone number,
and e-mail address should accompany the abstracts.

Abstracts should be sent to:

 SYNTAX WORKSHOP

 Department of Linguistics

 Winnipeg, Manitoba R3T 2N2

The deadline for abstract-submission is February 7th, 1996.

The program will be announced in early March. For further
information, contact Charlotte Reinholtz at the above address or

Invited Speaker: Charles Fillmore (University of California, Berkeley)

This session on the Theory of the Lexicon invites abstracts on all
aspects of lexical representation, including (but not limited to):

*formal aspects of and alternatives to lexical rules 
*inheritancehierarchies (defaults, multiple inheritance, etc.) 
*lexical semantics(lexical decomposition, the mapping problem, 
	argument structure, etc.)

 incorporation, etc.)
*complex lexical signs (idiosyncratic constructions and idioms)

Following the paper presentations will be an open discussion of the HPSG
lexicon.
