Meeting Description:

The last fifteen years have seen the emergence of a number of alternative
approaches to structure building in natural languages. Antisymmetry (Kayne
1994), left-to-right top-down merge (Phillips 1996, 2003; Bianchi & Chesi 2006;
Guimarães 2002, etc.), sideward movement (Nunes 1995, 2001, 2004; Hornstein and
Nunes 2002; Nunes & Uriagereka 2000; Hornstein 2000, among others),
multi-dominance structures (see Starke 2001; Svenonius 2006; Citko 2000, 2005;
Abels 2004; Gärtner 1997, 2002; Van Riemsdijk 1998, 2001, 2006; Gracanin-Yuksek
2007; Chen-Main 2006), and late insertion of adjuncts (Lebeaux 1988, Stepanov
2001), for instance, have made it possible to find new solutions for old
problems. Within this context, the University of the Basque Country (UPV-EHU)
will host a two-day conference with the purpose of bringing together different
conceptions of the mechanisms by which the syntactic structure of natural
languages is built, from the point of view of both merge and move. Papers which
deal with these and related issues are invited for oral presentations of 30
minutes plus ten minutes for discussion.

Invited Speakers:
Prof. Barbara Citko (U. of Washington) and Prof. Jairo Nunes (U. of Sao Paulo).
