Workshop on Cross-linguistic Variation in Auxiliary Selection

Short Title: Workshop on Auxiliaries
Location: Davis, CA, United States of America
Date: 31-May-2003 - 01-Jun-2003
Call Deadline: 14-Apr-2003

Meeting Description:

Many languages show a split in the distribution of perfect
auxiliaries. In French, Dutch, Italian, and German, for instance, some
verbs select the 'be' auxiliary, while others select the 'have'
auxiliary. Recent work on split auxiliary systems highlights the role
of lexical-semantic factors such as animacy, telicity, volitionality,
etc., in the formulation of auxiliary selection constraints. This
approach receives support from an emerging wealth of evidence from
cross-linguistic variation and language development, and from less
studied languages (Yiddish, Old Spanish, etc.). These data challenge
many of the received views about perfect auxiliary selection. The
organizer invites submissions on topics related to the
lexical-semantics of auxiliary selection, studies of language
development or cross-linguistic variation of split auxiliary systems,
or theoretical approaches to auxiliary selection. Invited Speakers:

Géraldine Legendre (Johns Hopkins U.)
Annie Zaenen (Stanford U./PARC)
Thomas Shannon (UC Berkeley)
