Meeting Description:

The study of pronouns has been an engine behind the development of many theories in grammar. Much has been learned about pronouns, and yet the topic continues to be an area of fruitful research. Lively debates on strong and weak pronouns, free and bound variable pronouns, de se and de re pronouns, indexical pronouns and fake indexicals, indefinites, simplex and complex anaphors abound in the current linguistic literature. 

Questions related to the nature, distribution, interpretation, acquisition and processing of pronouns, although not a novelty, have not settled throughout generative grammar enterprise, as may be seen in the literature (Büring, 2005; Cardinaletti & Starke, 1999; Chomsky, 1981; Déchaine & Witschko, 2002; Forchheimer, 1953; Galves, 2001; Harbour, 2007; Harley & Ritter, 2002; Kato, 1999; Kato & Duarte, 2005; Menuzzi, 2000; Moura, 2006; Nunes, 1996; Ritter, 1995; Rooryck & Wyngaerd, 2011; Rullmann, 2004; among many others). Thus, a workshop on pronoun behavior would be an ideal atmosphere to discuss those aspects about the architecture of grammar. The workshop aims at providing a forum for the presentation and discussion of recent research in morphosyntax, semantics and processing of pronouns from a formal perspective.

Invited Speakers:

Daniel Harbour, Queen Mary, Universtity of London
Martina Wiltschko, The British Columbia University

The conference will be held at the Universidade Federal da Bahia, Campus Ondina, Salvador, Bahia, Brazil.
