Workshop on Structure Building 

Date: 13-Apr-2012 - 14-Apr-2012 
Location: Konstanz, Germany 
Contact: Antje Lahne 
Contact Email: antje.lahne at uni-konstanz.de 
Meeting URL: http://www.uni-konstanz.de/lahne/structurebuilding.html 

Linguistic Field(s): Syntax 

Meeting Description: 

The aim of the workshop is to bring together researchers working on issues in syntactic structure building, discuss new ideas about the building up of syntactic structures, and to gain a broader empirical base relevant to the issue. Among the topics discussed are the following:

-- Locality effects, anti-locality effects
-- Alternatives / optionalities in syntax
-- Core grammar vs. peripheral principles in structure building
-- How can an explanatory overlap between relative and absolute locality be avoided?
-- Can relative locality be derived as a direct consequence of syntactic structure building? (If so, how?)
