The 10th Seoul International Conference On Generative Grammar
Dongguk University, Seoul
July 17 - July 20, 2008
Co-hosted by the Korean Generative Grammar Circle and Dongguk University, Seoul
Hagit Borer (University of Southern California)
Marcel den Dikken (City University of New York)

Peter Svenonius (University of Tromsø)
Theme of General Session: Minimalist Explorations of the Syntax-Lexicon Interface
While we especially encourage submissions touching on the theme of the
general session specified above, equal consideration will be given to papers from all areas of generative grammar, which may include syntactic theory, syntax-semantics interface, syntax-morphology interface, syntax-phonology interface, syntactic acquisition, and others. The conference will consist of the general session, one additional workshop, a poster session, and a series of lectures from the plenary speaker and the invited speakers.
Abstracts should be anonymous and may not exceed 2 pages (A4), including
examples and references, with 2.54 cm (1 inch) margin on all four sides and
should employ the font Times New Roman 12 pt. Submissions are limited to a
maximum of one individual and one joint abstract per author. Please send a
separate file containing the following information: (i) the title of the paper, (ii) the author's name, (iii) affiliation, (iv) e-mail address, (v) telephone number, and (vi) the preferred session (general, workshop, poster).
Abstracts should be sent electronically as Word or PDF attachments to Hee-Don Ahn at firstname.lastname@example.org no later than May 2, 2008.
Abstracts will be reviewed by readers, and authors will be notified by April 31, 2007. Each speaker of the general and the workshop session will be allotted 20 minutes followed by 10 minutes for discussion. Accepted papers will be published in the Proceedings of 2008 Seoul International conference on Generative Grammar, which will be distributed to the conference participants. All presenters will be asked to provide camera-ready copies of their papers in publishable form by July 11, 2008. The text should be single-spaced and the general page limit is 20 pages including appendices and references.
All the information about the conference is available on our website
Participants are asked to check this web page to keep up to date regarding possible alterations and changes. Additional questions concerning the conference can be answered by sending a question to Myung-Kwan Park at email@example.com.
Workshop: Structuring Lexical Information in Syntax
The characterization of words and structures and the division of grammatical labor between them have been a major component of the generative linguistic agenda. In recent years, a number of grammatical models have been advanced to defend the view that the core syntactic properties of lexical entries can be shouldered by various aspects of UG-determined structural templates (see Borer 2005 and Marantz 2001, among others). This view suggests that lexical entries, in particular, has very limited, if not null, inherent formal properties and can be just raw material which is pured into the structural mould to be assigned grammatical properties. Thus, under this view syntactic structures essentially provide unambiguous formulas for the semantics to interpret.
In this workshop, we invite papers that deal with the issues concerning this particular neo-constructionist approach of nominal or verbal projections.
