Linguistic Field(s): Morphology; Semantics; Syntax 

Language Family(ies): Romance 
Meeting Description: 

'Mismatches', i.e. linguistic phenomena with 'feature contradictions' on
different levels of linguistic structure, like deponentia in Latin (passive
morphology with an active semantics), are a recently much discussed linguistic
topic (cf. e.g. the volume Mismatch: Form-Function Incongruity and the
Architecture of Gramma' edited by Elaine J. Francis and Laura A. Michaelis,
2002, CSLI Publications).

Therefore, the fifth NEREUS workshop will focus on different cases of mismatches
in Romance languages, discussing theoretical aspects as well as concrete cases
of e.g. 'problematic' arguments and argument-marking patterns, agreement
mismatches inside DPs, subject verb-agreement, clitics and complex predicates.
The languages discussed range from Catalan and Spanish over Romanian and
Brazilian Portuguese to a multitude of different Italo-Romance varieties.
