the Leipzig Valency Classes Project (i.e., Andrej Malchukov, Iren
Hartmann, Martin Haspelmath, Bernard Comrie, and myself, cf.
http://www.eva.mpg.de/lingua/valency/index.php) is planning to organize
a workshop on _The Argument/Adjunct Distinction Cross-Linguistically_
during the 44th Annual Meeting of the Societas Linguistica Europae, 8-11
September 2011 in Logroño, Spain (http://sle2011.cilap.es/).
Some of the topics we are interested in are the following:
- the distinctions between arguments and adjuncts in individual languages;
- diagnostics for the argument/adjunct distinction in individual
languages and across languages;
- cross-linguistic applicability/universality of diagnostics for
- the question of whether the distinction between arguments and adjuncts
is dichotomous or rather gradient;
- mismatches between semantic and syntactic valency.
More detail is found in the attached document.
Towards the organization of the workshop we need preliminary titles and
mini-abstracts (some 3-5 sentences) from potentially interested
participants. The deadline for these is _Thursday, Nov. 11, 2010_. That
will allow us a little time for preparing the finalized version of the
workshop proposal before the Nov. 15 deadline. Please note that
expressing an interest in participating by sending us a title and
mini-abstract is not binding. Later on (Jan. 15, 2011) there is a
deadline for regular abstracts.
Please use this address for sending your title/abstract:
