16-20 August 2004, Workshop: Semantic Approaches to Binding Theory

Date: 16-20 August 2004
Location: Nancy, France
Deadline: 26 March 2004

Binding Theory, which is concerned with sentence-internal constraints on anaphora, was originally conceived in syntactic terms as a set of conditions on the distribution of indices. But other researchers have attempted to derive these constraints from lexical semantics or the interpretative procedure rather than the syntax. Some add a semantic component to a syntactic core, but others are more radically semantic.

The workshop, which is intended for advanced PhD students and researchers, will provide a forum to compare and assess these diverse proposals. We welcome proposals for 45mn contributions (30mn presentation + 15mn discussion), which should be specific, explicit and semantically informed.

Extended deadline for submissions is March 26, 2004. This workshop is part of ESSLLI 2004. For more information, see the workshop website at http://www.linguistics.ucla.edu/people/schlenker/ESSLLI04.html.
