Linguistic Field(s): Syntax

Meeting Description:

The first workshop related to the ERC project From Maps to Principles: Syntactic Cartography and Locality (SynCart) will be held from July 11 till July 15, 2016 in Chiusi-Siena-Pienza-Montepulciano, Italy.

The SynCart project, hosted by the Department of Linguistics at the University of Geneva since 2014, aims to break new ground in syntactic theory, comparative syntax and acquisition by combining three main strands of research:

1. the cartography of syntactic structures, which attempts to draw detailed maps of syntactic configurations
2. the theory of syntactic locality, with special reference to intervention and delimitation principles
3. the minimalist investigation of the fundamental ingredients of syntactic computations

Interconnected issues of cartography and locality are addressed both in the adult grammar, and in language acquisition.

The first SynCart workshop will be devoted primarily to general theoretical and descriptive issues bearing on syntactic cartography.

There are still a few slots available for graduate students and junior researchers to participate in the workshop.
