This workshop hosted by LUCL in Leiden (The
Netherlands) aims to provide a forum for anyone
interested in Welsh syntax. Confirmed invited
speakers include prof. Ian Roberts and dr.
David Willis (Cambridge University) delivering
keynote lectures about the structure of the
left periphery in Welsh, followed by ample time
for discussion and input from the audience.
Call for Papers:
We welcome abstracts for papers dealing with
any topic in Welsh syntax (not just the left
periphery!). The analysis can be theoretic
and/or data-oriented, from either a synchronic
or diachronic perspective (or both).
Cross-linguistic comparisons with Welsh syntax
will also be taken into consideration.
Abstracts (in English) should be sent to
m.meelenhum.leidenuniv.nl. The workshop
will have an informal character, but the
guideline for presentations will be 30 minutes,
followed by 15 minutes of discussion. The
deadline for abstracts is 15 May 2014.
Applicants will be notified of acceptance of
their paper in June 2014.
