JeNom 5: Eventualities beyond verbs
The 5th workshop on nominalizations
Participation is for free. Please register following this link.
JeNom 5 aims at bringing together researchers who are concerned with the argument structure and the temporal/aspectual properties of noun phrases and other nominal constituents in various languages and frameworks. The JeNom Workshops originated in France (which explains its French acronym: Journées d'études sur les Nominalisations); the most recent edition was held in Stuttgart, JeNom3 at the University of Paris 8. This year's JeNom will be held at Universitat Pompeu Fabra, Barcelona, with the support of the CNRS lab UMR 7023 Structures Formelles du Langage & Université de Paris 8.
We invite submissions on any aspect of the study of nominal expressions (morphology, syntax, semantics, and/or interfaces) in various languages and theoretical frameworks.
This year's meeting aims at broadening the topic and at moving beyond the morphology, syntax and semantics of nominalizations of eventive verbs. The overarching topic concerns the representation of eventualities beyond the verbal domain. Topics include, but are not limited to the following:
Each talk will receive 30 minutes for presentation and 10 minutes for discussion. Abstracts should be anonymous nad should not exceed 2 pages in length (A4 or letter-size), in 12 pt. font, with 1-inch/2,5-cm margins, including examples and references. The language of the submissions and the presentations will be English.
