2nd call for papers: “Asymmetries in Language: Presuppositions and beyond” at ZAS Berlin, July 1st-3rd, 2019

On July 1st-3rd, 2019 the workshop “Asymmetries in Language: Presuppositions and beyond” will take place at ZAS Berlin. The workshop is organized by Matthew Mandelkern (University of Oxford), Jacopo Romoli (Ulster University), Uli Sauerland (ZAS) and Florian Schwarz (UPenn).

Call for submissions:
The goal of our workshop is to bring together researchers working on order effects arising from incremental interpretation, in particular in connection with presupposition projection and related phenomena, such as redundancy effects, epistemic modals, and anaphora, through theoretical, experimental, and/or cross-linguistic perspectives (full workshop description can be found here). We welcome abstracts for 30 minutes talks (20 + 10 discussion) which address issues relevant to the workshop’s theme. Abstracts should be no longer than 2 A4 pages, with a 12 pt font and 2.5 cm/1 inch margins. The abstracts must be anonymous and not identify the authors. Authors may submit at most two abstracts, at most one of which may be single-authored. Please submit via EasyChair by 15 March 2019 at the latest.
