The Princeton Program in Linguistics will host the inaugural meeting of a new syntax workshop, the Princeton Symposium on Syntactic Theory (PSST),on April 6th and 7th, 2018.
The theme for this meeting of PSST is syntactic interfaces, with the following guiding questions:
- How modular is syntax, as a component of grammar? How modularly can we work, as researchers investigating syntax?
- What is the architecture of the grammar, and how does syntax fit into it? What kind of information can be shared between grammatical components, and at what point(s)?
- What can we learn about syntax by using interface data, both through case studies in particular languages/language-families and through larger cross-linguistic surveys?
Registration is free! We ask those planning to attend to register by March 21 at the the link below.
