CONF: Syntax of the World's Languages VI (SWL6), Pavia, Italy, 8-10 September 2014
- *** Apologies for cross-posting ***
The sixth `Syntax of the World's Languages' conference (SWL6) will be
held at the University of Pavia, Italy, on 8-10 September 2014.
In the same spirit as previous conferences in this series (SWL I -
Leipzig 2004, SWL II - Lancaster 2006, SWL III - Berlin 2008, SWL IV -
Lyon 2010, and SWL V - Dubrovnik 2012), the conference will provide a
forum for linguists working on the syntax of less widely studied
languages from a variety of perspectives.
The main purpose of the conference is to enlarge our knowledge and
understanding of syntactic diversity. Contributions are expected to be
based on first-hand data of individual languages or to adopt a broadly
comparative perspective. The discussion of theoretical issues is
appreciated to the extent that it helps to elucidate the data and is
understandable without prior knowledge of the relevant theory.
All theoretical frameworks are equally welcome, and papers that adopt
a diachronic or comparative perspective are also welcome, as are
papers dealing with morphological or semantic issues, as long as
syntactic issues also play a major role.
Abstracts of no more than one page (plus possibly one additional page
for examples), should be sent in PDF format to
swl6.conference@... by January 31st, 2014, with ''SWL6
abstract'' in the subject line (authors will receive notification of
acceptance by March 31st, 2014). Submissions should be anonymous and
refrain from self-reference. Please provide contact details (name,
phone, fax) and the title of your presentation in the body of the
email. Participants may not be involved in more than two abstracts, of
which at most one may be single-authored. The conference will be held
in English and abstracts must be submitted in English.
