Meeting Description:

The workshop brings together linguists from different frameworks to discuss
finiteness in natural language. Major focus areas are finiteness in (first and
second) language acquisition; the relation between finiteness and linguistic
categories such as tense, agreement, modality, and negation; the role of
finiteness in binding, and the expressions and repercussions of finiteness in
languages with no morphological finiteness distinction, such as Chinese.
