Linguistic Evidence 2020:

Linguistic Theory Enriched by Experimental Data

13-15 February 2020

The unique feature of the Linguistic Evidence conference series is its concern with the relationship between elicited data types such as experimentation, field work, and questionnaires and linguistic theory building in the field of syntax and semantics. The aim of this biannual conference series is to provide an occasion where linguists who wish to combine attention to empirical adequacy with theoretical informedness can meet and learn from each other. The central aim is to promote the integration of experimental and theory-driven approaches to the study of language. Research across disciplinary boundaries in which theoretical and/or experimental linguists work together with colleagues in adjacent fields is always welcome, as are meta-studies which address issues around the collection and processing of elicited data.
