It is uncontroversial that language has both a sound and a meaning
component. In addition to the latter two, a narrow syntactic component is
postulated by linguists. But is narrow syntax a real, empirically identifiable
subcomponent of the human ability to use language in the most general
sense, or is it merely an analytical artifact? Are there principled grounds for
separating 'Merge' from prosody, implicature, presupposition, parsing,
functional structure, the lexicon, morphology, phonology, stylistic movement,
and binding theory? While there are various conceptual lines of reasoning
to adopt a position on these issues, this position must always be backed up
by empirical evidence. Are there mechanisms in the sound and meaning
components that achieve the same results as Merge? And, if so, do they
require an extra level of quasi-syntactic processes to achieve them? What
do we know about how narrow syntax interfaces with these other systems?
Abstracts relating to these questions but not limited to them are invited for
presentation at GLOW 34. The questions should not only be addressed
from the viewpoint of syntax, or current syntactic theories, but should also
be addressed from within phonology, morphology, semantics and
pragmatics, vis-a-vis-syntax, as well as by psycho-linguistics.
Abstracts (both for oral presentations and posters) must not exceed 2
pages in length (A4 or letter-sized). This includes data and references.
Abstracts must have the following format: font not smaller than 12pt., single
spacing, 1-inch/2,5-cm margins on all sides. Submissions must be in pdf-
format. Submissions are limited to 2 papers per author, only 1 of which may
be single-authored. Nothing in the abstract, the title, or the name of the
document should identify the author
Abstracts are invited for slots for oral presentations for 45 minutes + 15
minutes of discussion. In addition, GLOW 34 offers two poster sessions.
When submitting the abstract, the author(s) should indicate whether they
wish to be considered for oral presentation only or would also be willing to
present a poster. Financial reimbursement is limited to oral presentations.
20 papers will be selected for oral presentation. 30 papers will be selected
for poster presentation.
All abstracts must be submitted via
When submitting, it should be indicated which group the paper belongs to
(i.e., syntax, phonology, etc.) by ticking the appropriate box. Also, keywords
regarding the contents of the paper should be given.
