Linguistic Field(s): Semantics; Syntax 

Meeting Description: 

In recent years, the study of the interaction between different levels of
linguistic knowledge has attracted increasing interest. In order to speak
or understand a language we need to access different mechanisms whose
interaction cannot be fully appreciated from a non-integrated approach.
This workshop aims to bring together scholars who have been working on
these issues providing cross-section, cutting-edge accounts of developments
in the interfaces between phonetics, phonology, morphology, syntax,
semantics, and pragmatics. The workshop will provide a forum for discussion
of methods, theoretical perspectives, and accounts of the interaction
between components of the language faculty.
