Meeting Description:

Events across Categories: Theoretical and Experimental Approaches to
Event Structure

The theme of this workshop is event structure across categories: the way
the situations are represented in natural language morphosyntax and
semantics, with special emphasis on the patterns that are found not only in
verbs but also related adjectives and nouns. Since experimental
neurological and psychological approaches to the study of lexical semantics
and the syntax-semantics interface have gained prominence in recent
years, and there is an increasing collaboration between researchers in
linguistic theory, psycholinguistics, and neurolinguistics, this workshop has
the specific goal of bringing together experts in both theoretical and
experimental approaches to the study of event structure. In the theoretical
domain, the analysis of event structure will contribute to our understanding
of the syntax-semantics interface and the relation between events and such
general semantic phenomena as gradability and reference; in the
experimental domain, research on the acquisition and processing of events
will certainly have implications for general theories of language and aspects
of cognition such as the conceptualization of space and time or causal

The workshop is open to anyone who is interested in attending. There is no
registration fee, but we ask that you write to event.cchs cchs.csic.es and let
us know if you are planning to attend. Certificates of attendance will be
available upon request for those who need them.

Parking is available by reservation in the CCHS parking lot. In order to
reserve parking, please send us in advance your full name, passport/ID
number, and the license plate number, make and model of your car. Space
is limited.
