Final Call for Papers:

(Co-)Distributivity 2016

Abstract Submission Deadline: 5 December 2015

We welcome work on formal syntax and semantics of distributive dependencies (distributivity and co-distributivity) in spoken and sign languages, as well as psycholinguistic studies on processing and acquisition of distribution.

We encourage submissions exploring 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 quantifiers and other markers of distributive keys
- The syntax and semantics of markers of distributive shares (e.g. reduplicated numerals in Hungarian, Georgian, Tlingit, cîte indefinites in Romanian), in particular possible licensors for dependent indefinites
- Distributive vs. collective predication (The boxes are heavy. (i) individually heavy (ii) collectively heavy.
- (Lack of) multiplication effects for indefinite singulars across multiple events (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)
- Distribution properties of verbal plural markers (time, space, participants)
- Distribution properties of group nouns and collective nouns (family, team, herd, army)

We invite submissions for 25-minute presentations (plus ten-minute discussions).

Abstracts should be at most 2 pages in length (including examples and references) written in French or English.

Abstracts must be anonymous and should be sent by email (plain ASCII, rtf, ps or pdf) to :
codistrpouchet.cnrs.fr
