argument structure

Cynthia Thompson (Northwestern,

Call for papers:
The aim of this workshop is to bring together scientists working in
different fields and with different methodologies to discuss the
mental representation of verbal argument structure. This topic has
been addressed by work in a variety of fields (language and conceptual
development, theoretical syntax and semantics, lexicology, linguistic
typology, psychology, cognitive neuroscience, neuropsychology, etc.).
In this workshop we hope to create a cross-disciplinary  platform to
discuss ongoing research. We believe that an open exchange between
scientists using different methods, working with different populations
and within different theoretical frameworks will be of great benefit
to the community. To this end we have invited speakers from different
fields (language acquisition, neuro-imagery and aphasiology,
theoretical syntax, theoretical semantics, sign language), each to be
commented upon by a researcher from another discipline. A selection of
papers presented in the workshop will be published in a special issue
of Recherches linguistiques de Vincennes (RLV).

We invite submissions for 30min talks. We especially encourage
submissions reporting  inter-disciplinary (or inter-disciplinary
motivated) work but will consider any submission (from any field)
dealing with verbal argument structure. Sign language (LSF, BSL, ASL)
interpreters will be available. Participation in the workshop is free.

Abstracts should be not longer than 500 words
Abstract submission deadline: May 20th  2011
Notification: by june 15th 2011
