      Countability Workshop


      A workshop organized by the Collaborative Research Center and the Department of Linguistics, Heinrich-Heine-University Düsseldorf, Germany.


      September 16-17, 2013


      Call for papers


      Abstracts are solicited for presentations which address theoretical or empirical issues (i) in the study of the mass/count distinction in the nominal domain as well as (ii) the parallel distinction(s) in the verbal domain. 


      Topics of particular interest include (but are not limited to):


      - cognitive basis of countability, its grammatical manifestations and sources for the cross-linguistic variation in its encoding

      - relations between count and non-count meanings, sort-shifting, type-shifting, and coercion

      - vagueness and gradations of individuation, mess and neat mass nouns

      - parallels and differences in the counting and measuring for noun and verb meanings

      - corpus-based and psychological evidence for the distinction between count and non-count meanings

      - computational modeling


      Submission Details
