AG 6 Referential and relational approaches to syntactic asymmetries

Building K1, room 11.91

Kurzbeschreibung // short description

There are a number of well-known asymmetries between syntactic elements, for example, between subjects and objects, indirect and direct objects, and arguments and adjuncts. The goal of this workshop is to expand the theoretical and empirical base of syntactic asymmetries and revive the pursuit of a unified approach to this phenomenon in contemporary theories. On the empirical side, this workshop aims to bring together research on asymmetries from a wide range of languages to gain a better understanding of the status of asymmetries cross-linguistically.
