Talk by Silvia Schäfer, Monday 10th 4-6 pm

We are very happy to announce the last talk of this semester’s Syntax Colloquium, which will take place on Monday, February 10, 4 – 6 pm in IG 4.301. Silvia Schäfer will talk about „The variation of participle agreement in four Veneto dialects“. Abstract: In my research project, I deal with the (apparently) optional participle agreement in VS structures of four Veneto varieties (Italy). I conducted fieldwork in which I tested whether the nature of the postverbal DP affects the preferably produced and accepted participle agreement. In this talk, I will present my fieldwork, including research questions, methodology and the first quantitative results. I will outline the deducible generalisations and raise the controverse question of variation in generative syntax.   You are cordially invited!...
