6 March 2018, Semantic Debates - ROCKY seminar on reciprocity, collectivity and typicality

Date: Tuesday 6 March 2018
Time: 13:15-18:00
Location: Room 103, Drift 25, Utrecht
Costs: free

In this seminar, we address some substantial semantic debates, such as the debate between Tanya Reinhart & Tal Siloni and Edit Doron & Malka Rappaport Hovav on the meaning of clitics like SI and SE in Romance languages. Does a sentence like “Gianni e Maria si sposano” (=G. and M. get married) get interpreted the way it is due to a special syntactic operator (R&S) or due to a pronominal interpretation of “si” like the expression “each other” in English (D&RH)?
