Conference given by Prof Charles LI, 21 novembre 2012

Conférence de Pr. Charles LI, le 21 novembre à Villejuif

Le LACITO et le programme ERC Sinotype ont le plaisir de vous inviter à une conférence du Prof. Charles LI, professeur émérite à l’Université de Californie à Santa Barbara, et chercheur invité au Collegium de Lyon, intitulée “Cognition, the Whorfian hypothesis and language complexity. A perspective from the Chinese spatial metaphor for time. “.

La conférence aura lieu le mercredi 21 Novembre 2012 à 14h30, dans la salle de conférence R-de-C du bâtiment D, CNRS, 27 rue Guy Môquet, à Villejuif. (métro Villejuif-Paul Vaillant-Couturier)  Plan d’accès : http://www.vjf.cnrs.fr/reseau/glv.html

Summary:

The conference will examine issues in cognition, the Whorfian Hypothesis and language complexity from a synchronic description and a hitherto uncharted diachronic account of the linguistic as well as conceptual metaphors for PAST and FUTURE. Currently, how do Chinese people conceptualize the past and the future? In the past, how did Chinese people conceptualize the past and future? What is the dominant metaphor for PAST and FUTURE in the Chinese language presently and in the past? In what way do answers to these questions shed light on complexity?

 

Call for abstracts–Argument realisation of GET, GIVE, PUT and TAKE verbs in functionally motivated approaches

Argument realisation of GET, GIVE, PUT and TAKE verbs
in functionally motivated approaches

Within the framework of the 25th Scandinavian Conference of Linguistics (25-SCL), organized under the auspices of the Nordic Association of Linguists (NAL), to take place at the University of Iceland, Reykjavík, May 13–15, 2013, we intend to hold a workshop on functionally motivated work in understanding the cross linguistic behaviour of the verbs GET, GIVE, PUT and TAKE and their argument realisation in various syntactic constructions.
The purpose of the workshop is to examine and discuss recent and current work in the use of functional, cognitive and constructional approaches to understanding the cross linguistic behaviour of the verbs GET, GIVE, PUT and TAKE. Contributions that offer a treatment of one or more of these verbs are very welcome!

The workshop will address the following main topics and research issues with respect to understanding the cross linguistic behaviour of the verbs GET, GIVE, PUT and TAKE:
·       Mapping at the semantic-syntactic interface across these verbs
·       The argument structure of GET, GIVE, PUT and TAKE verbs
·       The lexical semantics and event structure of GET, GIVE, PUT and TAKE verbs
·       Argument realisation of GET, GIVE, PUT and TAKE verbs in morphosyntax
·       The encoding of the significant thematic roles in these 3place syntactic constructions
·       Symmetries and asymmetries in the encoding of arguments in constructions using GET, GIVE, PUT and TAKE verbs
·       Grammaticalisation with GET, GIVE, PUT and TAKE
·       GET, GIVE, PUT and TAKE in a constructional perspective
·       Information structure in constructions with GET, GIVE, PUT and TAKE
The organisers of this workshop are a European group of linguists and computational linguists and computer scientists who have collaborated at various Societas Linguistica Europaea workshops and in the publication of the special issue of Linguistics (2012: 50-6) on GET verbs in European languages. The selection of GET verbs as a research topic was motivated in several ways and explained by their high frequency, their formal and semantic complexity, their high variability in cross linguistic comparisons and their susceptibility to semantic extension and to grammaticalization. There is already a substantial body of research on GIVE verbs, the verbal converses of GET verbs (Newman 1996 and Newman 1998).
The aim of the workshop is to draw a comprehensive, representative and detailed picture of the vast polysemy, multifunctionality and dynamics of GET, GIVE, PUT and TAKE verbs across languages. As these are highly dynamic verbs, their semantic and grammatical changes as well as their synchronic variation offer many research opportunities. However, we need to understand the behaviours and also syntactic construction patterns of these verbs in considerably more detail.

abstracts can be submitted through Easy Abstracts (http://linguistlist.org/confcustom/25scl2013)
no later than November 1st.

The 3rd Workshop on Sino-Tibetan Languages of Sichuan

The 3rd Workshop on Sino-Tibetan Languages of Sichuan will be held in Paris, 2-4 Sept. 2013 under the auspices of CNRS (Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique) <http://www.cnrs.fr/index.php>

. The conference’s website is:
http://tibburman2013.sciencesconf.org/

The aim of this workshop is to stimulate cross-fertilization of research efforts on the large number of little-explored Sino-Tibetan languages and dialects spoken in Sichuan and abutting areas. To what extent do features shared by several languages of the area reflect deeply entrenched borrowings? To what extent do they constitute retentions? These and
other intriguing questions prompted researchers at the Institute of Linguistics at Academia Sinica to organize in 2008 a workshop dedicated specifically to Tibeto-Burman Languages of Sichuan<http://typology.ling.sinica.edu.tw/old_201106/TB_of_Sichuan_eng>.

A second edition <http://ccl.pku.edu.cn/zmy/> of the workshop was hosted by the Center for Chinese Linguistics of Peking University in 2010, with an emphasis on “Principles and Practices of Reconstruction”. This edition’s special focus is on “Sino-Tibetan Languages of Sichuan in their Areal Context”: in addition to studies of languages of Sichuan proper, we
encourage submissions about Sino-Tibetan languages of areas that border on Sichuan. The conference will also include a panel on Rgyalrong and Kiranti comparative morphosyntax.
Abstracts are invited on topics that include descriptions of phonetics and phonology, morphology, syntax, semantics and pragmatics, historical-comparative linguistics, typology, and field reports on recently investigated languages.

Abstract submission deadline: Feb. 28th, 2013. (Abstract submission will be opened as from from September 1st, 2012.)
Notification of acceptance: April 1st, 2013.

For further details, please refer to the conference’s website
