Linguistic Field(s): General Linguistics 

Call Deadline: 15-Jan-2017 

Meeting Description:

This workshop is organized around the invitation of Pr. Leonard Talmy, who
will be giving a series of four lectures from Monday 15 to Friday 19 May 2017
(“How Language Represents Motion”, at the École normale supérieure in Paris:
see http://transfers.ens.fr/article601.html).

The workshop will focus on Neglected Aspects of Motion-Event Description. It
starts from the observation that there have been over thirty years of
extensive research on the expression of Path and Manner within the typological
distinction of Verb-framed vs. Satellite-framed languages. Whether the Path is
expressed by the verb or a satellite gave rise to abundant literature both in
descriptive linguistics and in psycholinguistics, in a typological
perspective.

A subtitle for this workshop could be “Beyond the Path / Manner dichotomy”. As
Talmy himself has noted in a foreword to a book edited by Iraide
Ibarretxe-Antuñano, Motion and space across languages and applications (to
appear), there is a full range of parameters of Motion description which have
been left somewhat unexplored:

“[…] research on the Motion typology has mainly addressed only Manner from the
full set of framing relations, and only Motion from the full set of
macro-event types. And research on fictive motion has addressed mainly
coextension paths out of the full set of path categories. But researchers can
use their strengths in diverse languages and empirical methods to examine the
remaining parameter values”. (Talmy, “Foreword: Past, present, and future of
motion research”, to appear).

We seek to address these additional aspects of Motion typology.

2nd Call for Papers:

This workshop is organized around the invitation of Pr. Leonard Talmy, who
will be giving a series of four lectures from Monday 15 to Friday 19 May 2017
(“How Language Represents Motion”, at the École normale supérieure in Paris:
see http://transfers.ens.fr/article601.html).

In ''Foreword : Pas, present, and future of motion research'', Talmy briefly
illustrates the different points which could be addressed:

1. The range of relations that a co-event can bear to a Motion event
2. The range of forms with which a co-event can conflate
3. The range of semantic components expressed in a verb
4. The range of macro-event categories
5. The range of multiple macro-event nestings
6. The range of fictive motion categories

We encourage submissions on these (and other) less-described parameters of
motion events and refer the reader to Talmy’s foreword (see here
http://wings.buffalo.edu/linguistics//people/faculty/talmy/talmyweb/Recent/Ira
ide.pdf) for details on these issues. We are open to various approaches,
including typological, contrastive, diachronic, corpus-based and experimental
(psycholinguistic, multi-modal) ones.

Submission information

A two pages abstract plus references and graphs/ tables (in times 12) should
be sent to workshop-named at ens.fr by January 15 2017.

Important dates & Venue

- Submission deadline: 15 January 2017 
- Notification of acceptance: 1 March 2017 
- Workshop: 19 and 20 May 2017 at the École normale supérieure, 45 rue d’Ulm,
