Call Deadline: 09-Mar-2005

Meeting Description:

CALL FOR PAPERS
Formal semantics and cross-linguistic data
http://www.ru.nl/pionier/esslli/
15-19 August 2005

organized as part of
European Summer School on Logic, Language and Information
ESSLLI 2005 http://www.macs.hw.ac.uk/esslli05/
8-19 August, 2005 in Edinburgh

Workshop Organizers:
  Helen de Hoop H.deHoop at let.ru.nl
  Joost Zwarts J.Zwarts at let.ru.nl

Workshop Purpose:
The purpose of this workshop is to strengthen the ties between formal
semantic methods and theories on the one hand and data from lesser-studied
languages across the world on the other hand. Both formal semantics and
descriptive and typological linguistics will benefit from more interaction
in this area. The workshop aims to provide a forum for advanced PhD
students and researchers to present and discuss their work with colleagues
and researchers who work in the broad subject areas represented at ESSLLI.

Workshop Topics:
Most formal semantic and pragmatic work is done on (Indo) European
languages, especially English. Only a small, but growing, number of formal
semanticists are involved in descriptive and typological linguistics
involving languages from other continents and some promising work has
already been done on topics such as quantification, number, tense, aspect,
and modality. We think it is of utmost importance for the development of
formal semantic and pragmatic theories to broaden the empirical database.
In this way, linguistic typology can provide us with a new perspective on
semantic and pragmatic analyses, while in addition formal accounts can
offer more precise criteria for a proper treatment of semantic and
pragmatic variation. For this workshop, we solicit original contributions
that either apply formal semantics-pragmatics in the analysis of
lesser-studied languages or in which theory formation crucially draws on
data from such languages or comparison between languages.

Submission details:
Authors are invited to submit an extended abstract describing an
application of formal semantic methods to cross-linguistic data.
Submissions should not exceed 10 pages/5000 words and be in PDF format.
Please send your submission electronically to J.Zwarts at let.ru.nl on or
before March 9, 2005. The submissions will be reviewed by the workshop's
programme committee. The accepted papers will appear in the workshop
proceedings published by ESSLLI. The format for the final versions will be
18 May 2005.

Workshop format:
The workshop is part of ESSLLI and is open to all ESSLLI participants. It
will consist of five 90-minute sessions held over five consecutive days in
the second week of ESSLLI. There will be 2 slots for paper presentation and
discussion per session. On the first day the workshop organizers will give
an introduction to the topic.

Invited speakers
Martina Faller
Donka Farkas and Henriette de Swart
