25 - 27 October 2017, Workshop on Linguistic Intuitions, Evidence, and Expertise, Aarhus, Denmark

Date: 25 - 27 October 2017
Location: Aarhus, Denmark
Deadline: Thursday 20 April 2017

At this conference we want to bring together linguists and philosophers interested in the methodological foundations of linguistics. In particular, we want to better understand whether linguistic intuitions can legitimately be used as evidence for theories of grammar. How big is the risk of bias and distortion when linguists use their own intuitions? Can the evidential value of linguistic intuitions be improved by systematically studying the intuitions of non-linguists? Or are there good reasons to prefer the judgements of expert linguists?

Although we solicit work concerning syntactic intuitions in particular, we also welcome work concerning other kinds of linguistic intuitions.
