CALL FOR PAPERSDeadline:  16 December 2012Complex predicates can be loosely defined as a sequence of items that behave as a single predicate, projecting a single argument structure within a clause. Each of the members of the predicate contributes part of the information ordinarily associated with a single head.Complex predicates are of various types and are found in typologically different languages. They give rise to important empirical and theoretical issues cutting across various subfields of linguistics, such as:- Syntactic and semantic modeling of complex predicate formation: compositionality, argument structure, event structure, etc.- Typological issues in complex predicate formation- Resemblances/dissemblances between syntactic and morphological processes of lexeme formation: idiomaticity, semantic groupings, lexicalization, analogical formation, exemplarity, etc.- Production and processing of complex predicates: storage vs. online processing, acquisition, etc.- Complex predicates and multiword expressionsThe purpose of the conference is to bring together those working on complex predicates in different perspectives and with a variety of approaches.

Presentation

Complex predicates can be loosely defined as a sequence of items that behave as a single predicate, projecting a single argument structure within a clause. Each of the members of the predicate contributes part of the information ordinarily associated with a single head.

Complex predicates are of various types and are found in typologically different languages. They give rise to important empirical and theoretical issues cutting across various subfields of linguistics, such as:

  • Syntactic and semantic modeling of complex predicate formation: compositionality, argument structure, event structure, etc.
  • Typological issues in complex predicate formation
  • Resemblances/dissemblances between syntactic and morphological processes of lexeme formation: idiomaticity, semantic groupings, lexicalization, analogical formation, exemplarity, etc.
  • Production and processing of complex predicates: storage vs. online processing, acquisition, etc.
  • Complex predicates and multiword expressions

The purpose of the conference is to bring together those working on complex predicates in different perspectives and with a variety of approaches.

Keynote Speakers:
