6 - 8 June 2019, Workshop "Expressing Evidence", Konstanz, Germany

Date: 6 - 8 June 2019
Location: Konstanz, Germany
Deadline: Thursday 20 December 2018

Evidential restrictions cross-cut grammars in varied ways. In this workshop, we want to bring together researchers working from different angles on how natural language expresses evidence. We are especially interested in (but not limited to) submissions that straddle the divide between linguistics and philosophy and address the following issues:
1. Evidentiality across syntactic categories
2. Speech acts conveyed by evidentials
3. Evidentiality in a broader context of attitude ascriptions and subjective expressions
4. Types of reasoning and knowledge involved in statements with different evidentials
5. Formal tools for modelling evidence

Invited speakers: Corien Bary (Nijmegen), Lisa Matthewson (British Columbia), Elin McCready (Aoyama) and Dilip Ninan (Tufts).

We invite submission of abstracts for 30-minute oral presentations (with additional time for discussion) on any topic related to the aims and scope of the workshop. We are especially interested in (but not limited to) contributions that straddle the line between disciplines dealing with the linguistic expression of evidence, such as linguistics, philosophy, and psychology.
