Call for papers

The workshop is a forum for dealing with all aspects of comparative Germanic syntax. Reflecting the strengths of syntactic research at the University of Konstanz, we are particularly keen to encourage submissions that focus on unconventional sources of evidence for syntactic theory: for instance, experimental/ psycholinguistic evidence; evidence from corpora, including historical corpora; and evidence from non-standardized and extraterritorial Germanic varieties.

Submission details:

We invite submissions of anonymous abstracts for 40-minute talks including discussion. Submissions should not exceed two pages, 12pt. single spaced, with 2.5cm (= one-inch) margins on all sides. Either PDF or Word format is accepted. Please upload your abstracts at by the deadline listed below.

Important dates:

Submission deadline: January 15, 2019
Notification: March 15, 2019
Workshop: June 14-15, 2019
