Workshop: Workspace, MERGE, and Labelling
(7 August, 2022)
Convenors: Victor Pan & Yuqiao Du

As the Minimalist Program advances into deeper waters, appeals have been made as to the reflections on the fundamentals that this campaign has assumed for modelling. Among the proposed topics, Workspace and MERGE (see Chomsky 2019 The Reading Program, 2020 UCLA lectures, 2021 Genuine Explanations) undisputedly claim the top priority, and new understandings of such bottommost concepts could introduce revolutionary consequences. Meanwhile, accumulating analyses have been reporting the power that the Labelling Algorithm possesses in filtering the illegitimate structures from the possible productions of free MERGE, which bears especial interests at this moment of theoretical crossroads. This workshop calls for discussions that focus on Workspace, MERGE and Labelling, including but not limited to their clearer definitions and potential subtypes, their interactions with other operations/conditions, such as the Phase Impenetrability Condition, and their applications on language facts. Presentations will be 30 minutes long plus 15 minutes of discussion. Some example topics can be found on the conference website: http://ling.cuhk.edu.hk/glowxiii/callforpaper1.php
