AG 8 Reference beyond the DP: towards a crosslinguistic typology of the syntax and semantics of proforms

Building K2, 17.72

Kurzbeschreibung // short description

The grammar of natural languages relies on proforms as one means of reference and context dependency. The workshop focuses on the typology of proforms that are not entity-denoting and aims at providing a forum for theoretical and experimental researchers, fieldworkers and corpus linguists to address crosslinguistic variation and potential generalizations in the syntax and semantics of those proforms, their type inventory and their development.
