 Call for abstracts


 workshop on movement-related issues in the syntax, semantics, and the
 syntax-semantics interface

 March 20-21, 1999

 Keynote speaker: Kyle Johnson, University of Massachusetts, Amherst

 Center of Excellence

 Kanda University of International Studies

 Makuhari, Chiba, Japan

We invite abstract submissions for 40-minute talks on issues having to
do with movement which arise in the areas of syntax, semantics, and
the syntax-semantics interface. Work which aims to distinguish
interpretations by means of movement, discusses the syntactic or
semantic repercussions of movement, investigates the syntactic or
semantic aspects of movement-created dependencies, or argues for or
against the use of movement for dealing with particular syntactic or
semantic phenomena is welcome. Possibly relevant topics include
wh-movement, quantifier raising, reconstruction, quantifier float,
island effects, parasitic gaps, pied-piping, and relative clauses.

The deadline for receipt of abstracts is January 31st, 1999. Please
send five copies of a non-anonymous abstract (maximally 2 pages in
length, using a legible font, with 1" margins on all sides, A4 or US
Letter paper), along with a sheet of paper bearing the author's name,
affiliation, paper title, and e-mail and regular mail
addresses. E-mail submissions will also be accepted (.ps or .pdf
formats). Send abstracts by mail to:
