General Session on
Movement in Minimalism

2010 Seoul International Conference on Generative Grammar will be held at Konkuk
University, Seoul, Korea, on August 17 - 20, organized by the Korean Generative
Grammar Circle.

Call for Papers

While we especially encourage submissions touching on the theme of the general
session specified above, equal consideration will be given to papers from all
areas of generative grammar, which may include syntactic theory,
syntax-semantics interface, syntax-morphology interface, syntax-phonology
interface, syntactic acquisition, and others. The conference will consist of the
general session, an additional workshop, and a series of lectures from the
keynote speaker. The theme of the additional workshop is as follows:

Workshop on
Multiple Dominance and Reconstruction

In recent literature, the system of multiple dominance has been argued to
provide an appropriate means for analyzing a number of constructions including
right node raising, ATB movement, etc. with broad implications for more general
issues having to do with the processes of structure building, movement,
linearization, and so on. (Wilder 1999, 2001, Citko 2005, Gracanin-Yuksek 2007,
among others). Closely related to the system of multiple dominance is the notion
of reconstruction, which independently has played a central role in virtually
all areas of syntax in the past two decades- that is, (c)overt movement,
interpretation, and pronunciation (Fox 1999, Boskovic 2001, Nunes 2005, among
others). These two systems (along with their alternatives) open up many new
paths to understanding the nature of the grammar of human language. In this
workshop, we invite papers that focus on any issues that involve multiple
dominance and/or reconstruction as well as their alternatives.

Abstracts should be submitted using the EasyAbs service of Linguist List. All
you need to do is visit: http://linguistlist.org/confcustom/SICOGG12 and click
on Abstract Submission. Then follow the online guidelines to upload your
abstract. This can either be in .pdf or .doc format. Note that the latter is
only acceptable if the abstract contains no special fonts. Only electronic
submissions through the link above will be considered. Abstracts should be
anonymous and may not exceed 2 pages (A4), including examples and references
(embed examples within the text), with 2.54 cm (1 inch) margin on all four sides
and should employ the font Times New Roman 12 pt. Submissions are limited to a
maximum of one individual and one joint abstract per author. Abstracts should be
sent no later than April 10, 2010.

Authors will be notified by May 15, 2010. Each speaker of the general and the
workshop sessions will be allotted 20 minutes followed by 10 minutes for
discussion. Accepted papers will be published in the Proceedings of 2010 Seoul
International conference on Generative Grammar, which will be distributed to the
conference participants. All presenters will be asked to provide camera-ready
copies of their papers in publishable form by July 25, 2010. The text should be
single-spaced and the general page limit is 20 pages including appendices and
This Year the LINGUIST List hopes to raise $65,000. This money will go to help 
keep the List running by supporting all of our Student Editors for the coming year.
