Meeting Description:

The general goal of Edisyn (an ESF-funded project which runs from 2005 - 2012 at the Meertens Institute and whose labours continue to bear fruits) is to stimulate international cooperation in the study of European dialect syntax, which is a rapidly growing field.

Call for Papers:

The workshop this year does not have a specific theme, but on previous years we examined doubling phenomena and dative constructions; therefore, this year we would be keen on receiving abstracts for papers in other areas of the grammar, for instance, complementation, information structure, and wh-clauses, although no thematic restrictions apply.

Submissions are limited to 1 single authored and 1 jointly authored abstract. Abstracts should not exceed 2 pages including figures, examples and references, with 1-inch margins and in fonts no smaller than 12-point. Please send your abstract as an attachment (PDF or Word format) by e-mail to Ioanna Sitaridou ( Submissions should be anonymous. Contact details (name, affiliation and e-mail) along with the title of the talk should be included in the body of the e-mail.
