call for papers - NEW DEADLINE - Development of complex linguistic structures

Rice Linguistics Society will host a poster session to accompany the  
12th Biennial Rice Symposium on Linguistics, to be held March 27-29,  
2008 in Houston, Texas on the Rice University campus.


The theme for the poster session is "Development of complex  
linguistic structures." We invite papers from all subfields and  
theoretical orientations of linguistics that examine complex  
linguistic structures. Successful abstracts will focus on the origin  
of complex structure(s) from the perspective of child language  
acquisition, diachrony, language contact (including pidgin/creole  
studies), synchronic change-in-process, or a combination of these  
factors. Complex structures include but are not limited to complex  
predicates, complementation, and relativization. These posters should  
complement the symposium topic of "The Genesis of Syntactic  
Complexity: An Interdisciplinary Symposium." While the theme of the  
symposium is limited to syntactic structures, research on any complex  
linguistic phenomenon will be considered for the poster session. For  
more information on the symposium, consult
