Meeting Description:

The workshop is part of the EuroBABEL project on Referential Hierarchies in Morphosyntax. It aims at bringing together language (-family) specialists and typologists. There will be key note addresses by Dr. Andrej Malchukov (Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Anthropology, Leipzig) and Professor Beth Levin (Stanford University). 

Call for Papers:

Third call for papers - Extended deadline (January 15, 2011)

Papers should focus on the effects of referential factors - such as animacy, information structure, definiteness, anaphoricity (pronoun vs. noun), person, and number - on the expression of three-participant events in one or more languages. These effects may target word order, agreement marking, direction marking, case/adpositional marking, and may involve various types of splits and alternations.

Topics of interest include (but are not restricted to):

- Three-participant constructions that deviate from the prototypical 'give' type, in terms of the referential properties of the participants and/or in terms of the lexical verb(s);
- The interaction between the referential properties of  multiple (i.e. two or three) participants;
- The interaction between the effects of referential properties of participants on the one hand, and lexical semantics of verb classes or individual verbs on the other hand;
- The relationship between the effects of referential factors on intransitive and transitive constructions on the one hand, and on ditransitive constructions on the other hand;
- Differences between the effects of referential factors on different types of marking: word order, agreement, direction marking, and/or case and adpositional marking;
- Referential effects in derived three-participant constructions (as opposed to non-derived ones);
- Frequency data obtained from corpora of spoken and/or written language;
- The effects of language contact and language change on the above phenomena.
