Meeting Description:

GLOW 34 will be hosted by the department of linguistics, University of 
Colloquium: April 28-30, 2011, 
Workshops: April 27 2011, May 1, 2011
Colloquium Topic: How much syntax is there in grammar? 
Subject areas: Phonology, Semantics, Morphology, Syntax, Pragmatics, 

Call For Papers

It is uncontroversial that language has both a sound and a meaning 
component. In addition to the latter two, a narrow syntactic component is 
postulated by linguists. But is narrow syntax a real, empirically identifiable 
subcomponent of the human ability to use language in the most general 
sense, or is it merely an analytical artifact? Are there principled grounds for 
separating 'Merge' from prosody, implicature, presupposition, parsing, 
functional structure, the lexicon, morphology, phonology, stylistic movement, 
and binding theory?  While there are various conceptual lines of reasoning 
to adopt a position on these issues, this position must always be backed up 
by empirical evidence. Are there mechanisms in the sound and meaning 
components that achieve the same results as Merge? And, if so, do they 
require an extra level of quasi-syntactic processes to achieve them? What 
do we know about how narrow syntax interfaces with these other systems?
Abstracts relating to these questions but not limited to them are invited for
presentation at GLOW 34. The questions should not only be addressed 
from the viewpoint of syntax, or current syntactic theories, but should also 
be addressed from within phonology, morphology, semantics and 
pragmatics, vis-a-vis-syntax, as well as by psycho-linguistics.

Abstracts (both for oral presentations and posters) must not exceed 2 
pages in length (A4 or letter-sized). This includes data and references. 
Abstracts must have the following format: font not smaller than 12pt., single 
spacing,1-inch/2,5-cm margins on all sides. Submissions must be in pdf-
format. Submissions are limited to 2 papers per author, only 1 of which may 
be single-authored. Nothing in the abstract, the title, or the name of the 
document should identify the author

Abstract are invited for slots for oral presentations for 45 minutes + 15
minutes of discussion. In addition, GLOW 34 offers two poster sessions. 
When submitting the abstract, the author(s) should indicate whether they 
wish to be considered for oral presentation only or would also be willing to 
present a poster. Financial reimbursement is limited to oral presentations. 

20 papers will be selected for oral presentation. 30 papers will be selected 
for poster presentation. Authors will be notified by the end of January, 2011
whether their paper got accepted.

All abstracts must be submitted
