Meeting Description:

The aim of this workshop is to bring together scholars working on typologically distant languages in order to further elucidate the ways spatial and temporal categories interact in a variety of domains including conditional and temporal sentences, counterfactuality, modality and aspect. Also, scalarity and paths, intrinsically bound to the linguistic expressions resulting from such space-time mapping will be of interest as well. The work presented by the organizers will focus on Japanese, but we hope to complement our findings with empirical data from other languages.

Session convener: Szymon Grzelak (Institute of Linguistics, Adam Mickiewicz University / Kyoto University)

Call for Papers:

We welcome contributions analyzing semantic and pragmatic phenomena from the viewpoint of space-time mapping and/or scalar properties. Example topics include, but are not limited to:

- Temporal functions of conditional sentences
- Factuality and counterfactuality
- Conditionals and scalarity (e.g. comparative conditionals)
- Scalarity of discourse markers
- Scalar paths
- Temporal/modal interface

Abstract submission deadline: 31 March 2015
