Meeting Description:

Invited Speakers:
- Eric Reuland (Utrecht)
- Patricia Cabredo-Hofherr (Paris/Surrey)
- Uli Sauerland (Berlin)

Over the past few decades, research into syntactic and semantic binding
has established itself as an important tradition that has contributed elegant
solutions to various problems of interpretation at the syntax-semantics
interface. Few theoretical notions have a range of application as broad as
that of binding. Domains of investigation that have benefited greatly from
insights into variable binding include reflexivity and reciprocity and, quite
generally, the interpretation of (empty or overt) pronominals; argument
structure and voice; matters of tense, aspect and modality as explored in
event semantics or possible-worlds semantics; quantification relating to
arguments as well as adverbials; and the interpretation of information-
structural categories such as focus and contrast. In all of these areas, a
reasonable association of syntactic structures with semantic representations
is hardly conceivable without the binding concept. It seems fair to say that
binding is one of the most important theoretical concepts in linguistic
analysis, and thus, by hypothesis, also a central principle in the architecture
of human language.
