27 - 29 April 2017, Workshop "Negation & Negativity in Natural Language", Bochum, Germany

Date: 27 - 29 April 2017
Location: Bochum, Germany
Deadline: Tuesday 31 January 2017

Negation and negativity are key features of human languages. While negation is a phenomenon of semantic opposition, negativity adresses a broader spectrum of phenomena. The investigation of the form and meaning of negation and negativity in natural language is at the heart of many debates in philosophy, linguistics, logic and psychology. The aim of this interdisciplinary workshop is to bring together the various perspectives of negation and negativity and thereby force the interdisciplinary research on negation and negativity in natural language.

We invite authors to submit an abstract of max. 500 words excluding references in PDF format for a talk of ca. 35 min (incl. discussion) or for a poster. Up to one extra page for figures is allowed. The five best student and PhD student submissions will be awarded a travel grant of 80€ each.
