18th Seoul International Conference on Generative Grammar (SICOGG 18)

The 18th Seoul International Conference on Generative Grammar (SICOGG 18) will take place at Sogang University, Seoul, Korea, from Tue., August 2 through Fri., August 5, 2016. The conference will be co-hosted by the Korean Generative Grammar Circle and Sogang University.
SICOGG 18 will consist of a general session, two workshops, and a series of lectures by the keynote speaker. The theme of the general session is ‘Beyond Core Syntax: A Minimalist Approach.’ The confirmed keynote speaker is Professor Mark de Vries of the University of Groningen, and the theme of his talk is ‘Beyond Core Syntax: On Appositive and Additional Material.’

The purpose of the general session is to provide an opportunity to rethink topics on appositive and additional material beyond core syntax in recent minimalist theorizing, which may include, but need not be limited to, the right dislocation and afterthoughts, the integration/orphanage debate concerning parentheticals, the properties of appositive clauses and phrases, the proleptic accusative, exceptional case marking, embedded hanging topics, the constructional typologies of coordination, parenthesis, ellipsis, the structure building operations, and so forth. We encourage submissions touching on any of these topics. 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 any other syntax-related interests.
