About the conference
In the same spirit as the previous conferences of this series (SWL I –
Leipzig 2004, SWL II – Lancaster 2006, SWL III – Berlin 2008, and SWL IV –
Lyon 2010), SWL V will provide a forum for linguists working on the syntax
of less widely studied languages or language varieties. Its main purpose
is enlarging our knowledge and understanding of syntactic diversity.
Contributions are expected to be data-driven, and the discussion of
theoretical issues is appreciated to the extent that it helps to elucidate
the data and remains understandable to persons that are not specialists of
the relevant theory. All major theoretical frameworks are equally welcome,
and papers that adopt a diachronic or comparative perspective are also
welcome, as well as papers dealing with morphological or semantic issues,
in so far as syntactic issues also play a major role.
