We’re very happy to announce that the Linearising Constituents Across Domains 2020 conference will be hosted in Bled, by the scenic Bled lake and castle, on
16-17 April 15-16 October 2020.
Linearising Constituents Across Domains 2020 will be the final conference in the long succession of the Across Barriers/Across Borders Conferences continuing from Object Agreement Across Barriers 2019 (Zagreb), Resolving Conflicts Across Borders 2017 (Dubrovnik), Ellipsis Across Borders 2016 (Sarajevo) and Agreement Across Borders 2015 (Zadar) that preceded it, following the tradition of inviting researchers to surpass theoretical, empirical, experimental and modality barriers in their understanding and modelling of linguistic phenomena.
LCAD2020 conference is organised as part of the UCL-hosted Leverhulme project Agreement Mismatches in Experimental Syntax: from Slavic to Bantu, this time in collaboration with the University of Nova Gorica and the Bled Institute. Agreement Mismatches in Experimental Syntax: from Slavic to Bantu studies the patterns of gender agreement and their interaction with linear order, in coordination, with a uniform methodology in six locations across the South Slavic area and three locations across South Africa to enrich, strengthen and reinforce the comparative analysis of two typologically unrelated language families by means of experimental methodology.
