Meeting Description:

Funded under the International Network programme by the Leverhulme Trust, the
project 'Cycles of Grammaticalization' seeks to elucidate and diagnose the
complex series of factors that lead to grammatical change through time, with
particular reference to the negation cycle in English, French and German. The
research objectives are to establish: 1. The definition of criteria for
determining when a polarity item becomes a negative element, and 2. The means to
recognise the presence of a negative phrase. The relation between formal and
functional factors, reanalysis and language learning, dialect competition and
language contact, as well as diachronic data closer to everyday usage will also
be considered. Updated information is made available at

Dear colleagues,

August 2, 14h-17h. France Martineau (Ottawa) will be talking about the Phrase
Structure of the Negative Cycle in French, with Lene Schøsler (Copenhagen) as

Attendance is free of any charge and warmly invited.
