IATL 30, the 30th Annual Meeting of the Israel Association for Theoretical Linguistics, will be held at Ben Gurion University on October 20-21, 2014. We are interested in research which tests theories of language in general, including traditional areas of theoretical linguistics and also experimental areas such as psycholinguistics, neurolinguistics, and language acquisition.

Call for Papers:
The 30th Annual Meeting
Israel Association for Theoretical Linguistics
October 20-21, 2014
Ben Gurion University, Israel
Submissions are invited for 30 minute presentations of previously unpublished research in all areas of theoretical linguistics.
Thematic Session - Predication and Modification:
Submissions are invited for papers presenting previously unpublished research on all topics related to the syntax and semantics of predication and modification. Predication is traditionally defined as a relation between a subject and predicate. The syntax and semantics literature on the topic of predication debates the structure and interpretation of verbal and non-verbal predication, and its constituent elements - the subject, the predicate, and the existence of a syntactic category that relates the two. In contrast, modification is an optional relation between any constituent and a modifier, but the characterization of a given relationship as predicational or modificational is not always self-evident.
Some questions of theoretical interest are: Is there a fixed set of structural configurations (or even a single one) in which predication must be realized? What types of predications are purely semantic and what types require a syntactic substrate? Under what conditions can modifiers be intersective or nonintersective? Is there a derivational relation between attributive and predicative modifiers? What are the distinctions between secondary predicates and adverbials and how are these represented? Is the individual-level / stage-level distinction purely semantic in nature, or is it represented in the syntax? We invite papers on these and related topics.
Abstract Submission Guidelines:
Abstracts should be no longer than two pages, including examples and references. Page format: A4, 2,54cm (one inch) margins on all sides, 12-point font, single line spacing. Submissions are restricted to at most one single-authored and one co-authored abstract.
Please submit abstracts to the IATL EasyChair site: https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=iatl30
Please register at the site as an author, and when you receive a password, you can enter the site and submit your abstract. The abstract should be submitted in PDF format through the 'Upload Paper' section near the bottom of the page. (Note: Higher up on the page, in the 'Title and Abstract' section, there is a box for a plain-text abstract. Since we do not require a shorter abstract, you may simply retype the title of the paper in the abstract box.)
