The Workshop

Sidney Smith Hall 3130
19-20 June

This workshop is inspired by the following question:  why do relativization, nominalization and complementation strategies so often overlap in natural languages? We plan explore this question with a variety of constructions across a number of languages. A range of topics will be dsicussed:

  • Nominalized clausal arguments

  • "Gapless" relatives: resumptive pronouns, internally headed relatives

  • The semantics of non-canonical embedding

  • CP-DP parallelism

There will also be Data Dive session, where local researchers will share new and exciting patterns.
