Full Title: Workshop: The Impact of Pronominal Form on Interpretation 

Date: 15-Nov-2013 - 17-Nov-2013
Location: Tuebingen, Germany 
Contact Person: Patrick Grosz
Meeting Email: patrick.grosz at uni-tuebingen.de

Linguistic Field(s): General Linguistics; Morphology; Psycholinguistics; Semantics; Syntax 

Call Deadline: 28-Jul-2013 

Meeting Description:

Pronouns can vary along two dimensions: (i) their interpretation (e.g., free vs. syntactically bound vs. donkey pronouns) and (ii) their form (e.g., personal vs. clitic vs. null vs. demonstrative pronouns). The goal of this workshop is to bring together recent advances bearing exactly on the interplay of the two, e.g. how do choices along one dimension restrict the possible choices along the other one?

Invited Speakers:

Peter Bosch (University of Osnabrück)
Paul Elbourne (QMUL)
Irene Heim (MIT) 
Martina Wiltschko (UBC)

Commentators for Invited Talks:

Vera Hohaus (University of Tübingen)
Gerhard Jäger (University of Tübingen)
Jacolien van Rij (University of Tübingen) 
Ede Zimmermann (University of Frankfurt)

Discussion: Current Pronominal Issues at the Syntax-Semantics Interface

Uli Sauerland (Harvard/ZAS Berlin)
Sarah Zobel (University of Tübingen)

Organisational Committee:

Ideal submissions to this workshop might involve (but are not limited to) the following components (individually or in combination):

- Experimental testing using methods from psychology/the cognitive sciences
- Novel empirical findings (e.g. from corpus work), which shed light on pronouns at the syntax-semantics interface
- Potential extensions of current syntactic-semantic approaches to pronouns to accommodate other pronominal classes (e.g. null pronouns, demonstratives)
- Diachronic shifts of the pronominal form and interpretation
- Recent developments concerning (anti-)logophoricity
- Comparisons of quantifier-variable readings contrasting null pronouns with overt pronouns
- The cross-linguistic distribution of demonstrative pronouns and their comparison to personal pronouns
- Semantic differences between clitic pronouns and non-clitic pronouns
