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

Call Deadline: 15-Nov-2013 

Meeting Description:

The conference is devoted to the question whether head-marking languages have any distinctive information structural properties that are a function of, or related to, their head-marking morphosyntax.

Invited speakers:

Anna Berge
J├╝rgen Bohnemeyer
Stephen Levinson
Eva Schultze-Berndt
Jenneke van der Wal

Venue: Max Planck Institute for Psycholinguistics, Nijmegen

2nd Call for Papers:

Head-marking languages exhibit significant morphosyntactic differences from dependent marking languages, as Nichols (1986) and subsequent research has showed. An interesting question which is appropriate to ask in the context of contemporary research into information structure is whether head-marking languages have any distinctive information structural properties that are a function of, or related to, their head-marking morphosyntax. Information structure concerns the morphosyntactic coding of the different informational statuses an element may have with respect to the proposition (e.g. topic or focus), and it is therefore reasonable to inquire as to whether head-marking morphosyntax interacts with discourse in a distinctive manner.

We would like to elicit contributions on the above question and other related issues. The call is open for proposals which address pragmatic, semantic, morphosyntactic and/or prosodic aspects of the expression of IS in head-marking languages, from a theoretical, descriptive, or typological perspective. Studies dealing with interesting aspects of the expression of IS in particular head marking languages are explicitly welcome.
