Meeting Description:

MOSS in this format shall take place for the second time. Our young 
conference is a descendant of two separate conferences that took place in 
Moscow earlier, the Formal Semantics in Moscow (FSiM) workshop and the 
Syntactic Structures conference. MOSS's aim is to bring together people 
working within different theoretical frameworks and to encourage 
syntacticians and semanticists to have more substantial interaction with 
each other. The speakers should be prepared to give a talk to an audience 
that might not share all of their theoretical assumptions. Young researchers 
and students are especially welcome to apply. 

Call For Papers
The conference this year will consist of three sessions: a (mostly) syntax 
session, a (mostly) semantics session, and also a separate thematic session 
devoted to discourse particles and related phenomena.

The syntactic part of the conference is not limited to any particular 
framework or any particular topic. We invite papers in syntactic typology and 
functional syntax as well as in formal syntax, and theoretically and 
typologically oriented descriptive papers. 

The semantic part is not limited to any particular view on the general 
architecture of the grammar (e.g., direct compositionality, LF semantics, 
etc.) We invite papers in formal semantics and formal pragmatics, especially 
welcoming those which stress the interaction of semantics with syntax and 
the consequences of semantic data and analyses on the choice between 
different syntactic frameworks.

The special thematic session on discourse particles is designed to bring 
together researchers working on this topic from both semantic and syntacic 
perspectives. The issues for discussion at the session include:

-- semantics of discourse particles, and its integration into the semantics at 
the clause/sentence level;
-- theories which can sensibly deal with the polysemy of discourse particles;
-- syntactic behaviour of discourse particles in phrases and clauses, their 
fixed or non-fixed linear and structural position in larger constituents;
-- discourse particles having arguments of their own: description and 
-- grammaticalization of discourse particles. 

Proceedings of MOSS 2 will be published as a volume in MIT Working 
Papers in Linguistics series.
