International workshop on referential hierarchies in three-participant constructions

Date: 6 June 2011

The Workshop on Referential Hierarchies in Three-participant Construction was held in Lancaster on 20-22 May 2011 at the Lancaster House Hotel.

It is part of the EuroBABEL project on Referential Hierarchies in Morphosyntax (RHIM). It brings together language(-family) specialists and typologists to study the grammatical effects of referential factors - such as animacy, information structure, definiteness, anaphoricity (pronoun vs. noun), person, and number - on the expression of three-participant events in and across languages.

Information about the event, the workshop programme and abstracts can be found on the website.
