Ling L (also Workshop G): Experimental linguistics (advanced): Syntactic island effects across the world (advanced!) (*LIMITED*)

Gert-Jan Schoenmakers (CNRS, Université Côte d'Azur)
In this workshop we will discuss the literature on syntactic islands: configurations from which elements (arguably) cannot be extracted (e.g. wh-movement or topicalization). We will cover various theoretical analyses before you will collect data from your own language in a judgment experiment (a template will be provided). Ideally, in the end we will be able to compare data patterns from different languages. Requirements: active participation, basic knowledge of generative syntax, and prior experience with judgment experiments.
