Meeting Description:

Linearising Constituents Across Domains 2020 conference will be hosted online by University College London and Bled Institute on 15 -16 October 2020 (CET).

LCAD2020 conference is hoping to highlight the interconnectivity of contributions from varying perspectives, as the theme refers not only to linguistic domains (e.g. clauses, noun phrases, prosodic domains, tonal domains) but also across disciplinary domains (e.g. Slavicists, Bantuists, researchers in bilingualism and multilingualism, sign language researchers) that bring theoretical excellence and new empirical input to a part of the language map famous for its linear (conjunct) agreement. Considering the extent of the tradition and layering of the topic, the conference invites clearly written and theoretically innovative submissions for talks, with the potential to have an empirical and experimental impact on furthering our understanding of linearising linguistic elements in all areas of theoretical linguistics (phonology, morphology, syntax, semantics – across any theory), comparative linguistics, typological linguistics, bilingualism and multilingualism, sign language, psycholinguistics, neurolinguistics, language acquisition, and clinical linguistics.

Invited speakers:
Nancy Kula (University of Essex)
Richard Kayne (New York University)
Caterina Donati (Université Paris Diderot-Paris 7, LLF, CNRS)
Barbara Citko (University of Washington)
Diogo Almeida (NYU Abu Dhabi)
