Call for Papers:

As part of a semi-formal workshop to be held at Bielefeld University, we invite contributions that inform the formal analysis of word order in the VP from a large variety of perspectives. Thus, in addition to synchronic and comparative analyses, we welcome contributions on mono- and bilingual acquisition, language contact and change.

A non-exhaustive list of topics we are interested in are as follows:

- Base order and head directionality

- Correlates with linearization phenomena, e.g., adverb ordering or object ordering
- Accounts of left peripheral options and information structure
- Consequences of the VP structure on phonological form, in particular prosodic phrasing or nuclear stress
- Thematic structure and its syntax
- Effects of the properties of the arguments on word order
