Dear colleagues,

We would like to remind you that the *paper submission deadline* for the
rescheduled conference "Caritive Constructions in the Languages of the
World” is the *1st September 2020*.
The conference will be held from November 30th to December 2nd 2020, either
in ILS RAS (Saint Petersburg, Russia) or moved online, depending on the
epidemiologic situation.

With the best wishes,
Organizing Committee.

The Institute for Linguistic Studies, Russian Academy of Sciences is
pleased to announce the conference “Caritive Constructions in the Languages
of the World”, has been rescheduled for November 30 - December 2, 2020 in
Saint Petersburg, Russia.

The conference aims to bring together studies on caritive (a.k.a. abessive
or privative) constructions in different languages. The working definition
of caritive employed by the organizers is as follows:

Caritive describes non-involvement of a participant (Absentee) in a
situation, with the non-involvement predication semantically modifying the
situation or a participant of another situation.


●  *Jill went to the party without Jack.*

●  *Jack entered a room without windows.*

●  *I saw a beardless man.*

Submissions may address any issues related to caritive constructions:
pragmatic, semantic, syntactic, morphological, or lexical, synchronic or
diachronic, language-particular as well as cross-linguistic. We are
especially interested in papers concerning the expression of caritive
semantics in the languages that do not have a dedicated caritive marker.

*Invited speakers*:

Thomas Stolz (University of Bremen)

Matti Miestamo (University of Helsinki)

One person can submit two abstracts at most, only one of which can be
single-authored. Abstracts should be submitted in .doc/.docx/.rtf format to
