Call for papers: workshop on differential argument indexing at ALT 14 2022​

Differential indexing refers to the intra-linguistic variation with regard to the presence of bound verbal person marking (covering phenomena such as ‘optional agreement’, ‘clitic doubling’, ‘anti-agreement’, and ‘hierarchical agreement’), and the semantic, referential, and discoursestructural factors which trigger it. Language-specific as well as cross-linguistic studies have shown not only that the factors underlying differential indexing differ from language to language, but also that there is often a complex interplay of various factors involved within a single language. 

The workshop invites typological studies, presentations focusing on a particular areal or genetic group of languages, as well as language-specific (corpus-based) case studies. It will cover, among other things, the following:
the operationalization and evaluation of the various (combinations of) factors which trigger differential indexing
showcasing different methodologies that can be used to account for intra- and inter-linguistic variation
discussing relevant diachronic scenarios for how differential indexing arises
investigating and comparing differential indexing for various macroroles
exploring to what extent differential indexing might be related to other syntactic circumstances
