Going Romance 34 - Special session 

Preposition-Determiner Contractions : architectural considerations (Programme)

Wednesday 25 Nov 2020 - Digital conference

Invited speaker for the special session


Extended deadline: Tuesday 14 July 2020.

This workshop aims to bring together work on various aspects of Preposition-Determiner interactions in Romance, including but not limited to the following topics:

  • The Syntax-Phonology Interface: underlying phonological representation of determiners, phonological shape of the stem, procliticisation, lexical and segmental decomposition of determiners and Preposition-Determiner contractions
  • The Morphology-Phonology Interface: phonological conditions on the morphological realizations, allomorphy: how many lexical representations?
  • Visibility of information and modularity: phonology in the morphology or vice-versa; grammatical information associated to the phonological underlying representation
  • Phonologically-conditioned or morphological-conditioned allomorphy.
  • Syntax and semantics of Preposition-Determiner contractions
  • Syntax and semantics of Partitive determiners
  • Prepositions and Determiner omission
  • Diachrony of P+D contractions and Partitive determiners
  • L1 and L2 acquisition of P+D contractions and partitive determiners
