X Workshop on Formal Linguistics
We are pleased to announce the X Workshop on Formal Linguistics, to be held on August 28-29, 2014 at Universidade Federal do Rio Grande do Sul (UFRGS) in Porto Alegre, Brazil. The workshop welcomes papers on any topic concerning formal accounts of meaning and/or grammatical structure with relevance to current linguistic theory – in particular, those exploring core aspects of the organization of linguistic knowledge and interface phenomena (syntax-semantics, semantics-pragmatics, syntax-pragmatics, syntax-prosody, morphology-semantics, etc.). The conference is open to work done from any theoretical perspective in formal linguistics. The official language of the conference is English.
We are also pleased to announce that, as part of the activities of the workshop, Professors Gennaro Chierchia, John Beavers, Roberta Pires de Oliveira (UFSC) and Márcia Cançado will offer 3-day mini-courses from August 25 to August 27, 2014.
