Conference: Agreement Across Borders Conference 2015

The Agreement Across Borders Conference will be held on the 15th-16th of June 2015 by the EMSS Project in collaboration with the Linguistics Department at the University of Zadar, Zadar, Croatia.

This conference is organized as part of the project Experimental Morphosyntax of South Slavic languages, where agreement patterns are studied with a uniform methodology in six locations across the Western Balkans (in former Yugoslavia). This project has both a scientific and social agenda. On one side, it aims to investigate First and Last conjunct agreement in South Slavic languages and thus contribute to the currently debated topic (Bošković 2009, Marušič et al. in press) which revolves around the need for clearer descriptions of the data. On the other side the project aims to propagate psycholinguistic studies of South Slavic languages through cooperation between linguists across the borders of the former Yugoslavia.

Julie Franck (University of Geneva):
