Meeting Description:

Conference Description

In the same spirit as the previous conferences of this series (SWL1 – Leipzig 2004, SWL2 - Lancaster 2006, and SWL3 - Berlin 2008), SWL4 will provide a forum for linguists working on the syntax of less widely studied languages or language varieties. Its main purpose is enlarging our knowledge and understanding of syntactic diversity. Contributions are expected to be data-driven, and the discussion of theoretical issues is appreciated to the extent that it helps to elucidate the data and remains understandable to persons that are not specialists of the relevant theory. All major theoretical frameworks are equally welcome, and papers that adopt a diachronic or comparative perspective are also welcome, as well as papers dealing with morphological or semantic issues, in so far as syntactic issues also play a major role.

Conference Venue:

The conference will be hosted by the Institut des Sciences de l'Homme (ISH) in Lyon (France) and is organized by the laboratoire Dynamique du Language (DDL) of the Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique (CNRS) and the Université Lumière Lyon II.

Invited Speakers:

Ekkehard König (Freie Universität Berlin)
Lutz Marten (SOAS, London)
Claire Moyse-Faurie (CNRS, Paris)
Fernando Zúñiga (University of Zurich)
