      The Nature of Evidentiality (TNE2012), Leiden, The Netherlands, 14-16 JUNE 2012
      http://hum.leiden.edu/lucl/ tne-2012

      REGISTRATION: http://hum.leiden.edu/lucl/tne-2012/registration

      The purpose of this conference is to bring together researchers working on various language families and from various subdisciplines of linguistics to discuss the linguistic nature of evidentiality. Topics addressed:
      Theory: the nature of the network of relationships between evidential categories, and the descriptors that are needed to accurately map these relationships.
      Description: fresh data or novel analyses that throw a new light on theoretical and typological assumptions about evidentiality.
      Criteria: rigorous syntactic, morphological, and semantic tests for describing the differences between evidential categories.
      Evidential systems: the nature of the interaction of various evidential markers within a given evidential system.
      Beyond evidentiality: the relationships of evidentials with other linguistic categories such as tense, aspect, and modality.
