Forthcoming: Advances in formal Slavic linguistics 2016

Advances in Formal Slavic Linguistics 2016 initiates a new series of collective volumes on formal Slavic linguistics. It presents a selection of high quality papers authored by young and senior linguists from around the world and contains both empirically oriented work, underpinned by up-to-date experimental methods, as well as more theoretically grounded contributions. The volume covers all major linguistic areas, including morphosyntax, semantics, pragmatics, phonology, and their mutual interfaces. The particular topics discussed include argument structure, word order, case, agreement, tense, aspect, clausal left periphery, or segmental phonology. The topical breadth and analytical depth of the contributions reflect the vitality of the field of formal Slavic linguistics and prove its relevance to the global linguistic endeavour. Early versions of the papers included in this volume were presented at the conference on Formal Description of Slavic Languages 12 or at the satellite Workshop on Formal and Experimental Semantics and Pragmatics, which were held on December 7-10, 2016 in Berlin.

Denisa Lenertová, Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin

Denisa Lenertová (Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin) specializes on syntax, information structure and prosody, her research interests include corpus-based and experimental methods. She has worked on the syntax and information structure of the left periphery, embedded root phenomena, the typology of Slavic reflexives and impersonals, clitics, and infinitival structures.

Roland Meyer, Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin

Roland Meyer is professor of West Slavic linguistics at Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin. He works on synchronic and diachronic morphosyntax, pragmatics, intonation, corpus linguistics and automatic processing of Slavic languages, with an emphasis on empirical methods and the relation between empirical data and linguistic theory.

Radek Šimík, Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin

Radek Šimík (Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin) specializes in theoretical and experimental syntax, semantics, information structure, and their interfaces. His particular research interests include wh-constructions, definiteness in articleless languages, and formal expression of information structural categories such as givenness.

Luka Szucsich, Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin

Luka Szucsich is professor of East Slavic linguistics at Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin. He works on morphosyntax of Slavic languages and its interfaces, esp. argument structure, case, relative clauses, and cross-clausal dependencies. His research interests also include heritage languages, bi- and multilingualism, and areal linguistics.
