Meeting Description:

Adjectives in Germanic and Romance: Variation and Change
29 March - 30 March, 2012
Amsterdam, University of Amsterdam (ACLC)

Although the Germanic and Romance languages are two branches of the same language family and both have developed the adjective as a separate morphological and syntactic category, the syntax and semantics of adjectives is by no means the same in these two language groups. The goal of this conference is to map the differences and similarities in meaning and syntactic behavior of the Germanic and Romance adjective, and to find an answer to the question: are the (dis)similarities the result of autonomous development in each of the two branches of the Indo-European language family or are they caused by language contact.

Invited Speakers:

Guglielmo Cinque (Università Ca' Foscari Venezia)
Frans Plank (Universität Konstanz)
