Dear participants of the workshop "Problems of Polysynthesis",
Plans for our workshop are taking shape. Please find below a preliminary
list of participants and working titles of papers. The beginning of the
workshop is now planned for Oct. 9, 2 p.m., and we will probably close
on Sunday around noon (or a little later). There will be four sessions:
(1) "Lexicology and Lexicography of Polysynthetic Languages"
(2) "Event Compositionality"
(3) "Argument Properties"
(4) "Diachrony and Typology of Polysynthetic Languages"
The numbers in parentheses after the titles of the papers in the list
below indicate tentative assignment to the sections.
Those of you who have not yet specified a (working) title for their
contribution are requested to let us know their title within the next
It wood be good for us to have a short abstract of your paper by July
Note that I will be doing fieldwork in Canada during August, September,
and early October; so any correspondence concerning the workshop should
better be send to Nick Evans from early August on.
