Workshop on referential hierarchies in three-participant constructions
|20-22 May 2011, Lancaster University, United Kingdom - Part of the Referential Hierarchies in Morphosyntax (RHIM) Project||Home > Call for Papers|
Call for Papers
Papers should focus on the 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 one or more languages. These effects may target word order, agreement marking, direction marking, case/adpositional marking, and may involve various types of splits and alternations.
Topic of interest include:
Three-participant constructions that deviate from the prototypical 'give' type, in terms of the referential properties of the participants and/or in terms of the lexical verbs;
We invite abstracts for 20 minute papers. Abstract should be maximum 500 words, excluding title, references, and examples. Abstracts should be anonymous, and should be attached in Word and PDF format to an e-mail specifying author(s) name(s) and affiliation(s), abstract title, and contact information, and sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Deadline for submission is 15 January 2011. Notification of acceptance will be sent out before 15 February 2011.
