Linguistic Field(s): General Linguistics

Call Deadline: 12-Dec-2014

Meeting Description:

The Workshop on (Co-)Distributivity 2015 aims to explore the linguistic means used to establish distributive dependencies, including, but not limited to, questions like the following:

- The syntax and semantics of markers of distributive keys (e.g. distributive quantifiers) or distributive shares (e.g. Hungarian reduplicated numerals)
- Multiplication effects for indefinite singulars (e.g. He eats a sandwich for breakfast.)
- Distribution effects for plurals (e.g. dependent plurals : Here professors wear ties.)
- Distribution effects over times (e.g. A lot of people have been dying of this disease lately).

We welcome work on formal syntax and semantics on distributive dependencies (distributivity and co-distributivity) in spoken and sign languages.

Invited Speakers:

Donka Farkas (UC Santa Cruz)
Viola Schmitt (Wien)
