The conference will take place on August 7-9 at Dongguk University in Seoul. The main conference will be preceded by a one-day workshop on “(Non-)complementation” on August 6 at Dongguk University.

Workshop on (Non-)complementation

  • The workshop aims to provide an opportunity to discuss any issues concerning complementation and to explore new instantiations of and restrictions on (non-)complementation.
  • We invite oral presentations relating to theoretical, experimental, and computational perspectives on the syntax and semantics of (non-)complementation.

    • Similarities and differences between declarative and interrogative clausal embedding.
    • (Im)possibility of embedding imperatives.
    • Partial availability of articulated projections of embedded CPs.
    • Similarities and differences between IHRC and EHRC
