      CONFERENCE PROGRAM
       
      The Nature of Evidentiality (TNE2012), Leiden, The Netherlands, 14-16 JUNE 2012

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

      MEETING DESCRIPTION: 
      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.
