Second Call for Abstracts


29 - 30 March 2004
Leipzig, Germany


The workshop will consist of one plenary lecture (to be announced), some
six papers by local participants, and approximately one dozen papers
chosen from submitted abstracts.


Persons wishing to present a paper at the symposium are
invited to submit a one-page abstract, by regular mail,
email, or fax, to David Gil, at any of the following

Department of Linguistics,
Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Anthropology,
Inselstrasse 22, D-04103 Leipzig, Germany

email:  gil at eva.mpg.de
fax:  49-341-9952119

Deadline for submission of abstracts:  31 October 2003


Papers presented at the workshop should be concerned with any aspect of
the morphology, syntax, semantics and discourse use of numerals.  Papers
may deal with either the internal properties of numeral expressions or
their external properties, namely how they interact with the larger
linguistic units of which they form part.  Papers may be about cardinal
numerals, or other types of numerals, such as ordinal, collective,
distributive, multiplicative, and so forth.  Of particular interest are
papers which present novel facts about numerals in little-known
languages, papers which propose cross-linguistic typological
generalizations about numerals, and papers which explore possible links
between numerals and more general aspects of cognition and culture.
