Event description
The Scots Syntax Atlas is hosting European Dialect Syntax (Edisyn) Workshop IX at the University of Glasgow on Fri 22 and Sat 23 March 2019.

About this Event

Recent years have seen a flowering of theoretically-informed work on syntactic variation within languages (see Kroch 1994, Barbiers, Cornips & van der Kleij 2002, Henry 2002, Cornips & Corrigan 2005, Barbiers et al. 2008, Adger & Smith 2010, Tortora 2014, Thoms & Sailor 2018, among many others).

Central questions that have been addressed include: What is variation within a single grammar? How does variation within a grammar affect observed variation across dialects, registers, etc?

Theoretical approaches to these questions have ranged across competing/multiple grammars, microparameters, combinatorial variation, probabilistic variation in morphological exponence, variation in pronunciation of elements of movement chains, interactions between prosodic variation and morphosyntactic variation, etc.

This workshop aims to bring together researchers working on especially dialectal variation in syntax and its relation to the core theoretical questions above.
