Linguistic Field(s): Syntax 

Call Deadline: 23-Jul-2018 

Meeting Description:

Long-distance dependencies are a well-explored field of investigation. It is
concerned with constructions involving a constituent that may be moved over a
clause boundary. Traditionally, they include several types of wh-movement.
Focusing on interrogatives and relatives, this workshop intends to bring
together syntacticians from different grammatical frameworks (HPSG, Generative
Grammar and others). Transformational frameworks like Generative Grammar often
explain long-distance dependencies as the result of a movement operation. In
contrast, lexicalist frameworks such as Lexical Functional Grammar (LFG) and
Head-driven Phrase Structure Grammar (HPSG) do not assume movement. The goal
is to explore and compare the quality and quantity of construction specific
and syntactic descriptions needed to capture long-distance phenomena. Given
this range of phenomena, we welcome submissions contributing novel data and
innovative approaches to all aspects of long-distance dependencies of
interrogatives and relatives and their interaction.

Invited speakers:

Rui P. Chaves (University at Buffalo)
Caterina Donati (LLF Paris-Diderot)
Anne Abeillé (LLF Paris-Diderot)
Dominique Sportiche (University of California, Los Angeles)
