Linguistic Evidence 2018 - the ninth in the series - launches a new phase with its specific focus on the application of experimental methods to linguistic theory building in syntax and semantics and their interface phenomena. The tradition of this conference as a meeting place for linguists who seek to improve the empirical adequacy of linguistic analysis will be continued. The central aim is to promote the integration of experimental and theory-driven approaches to the study of language. Interdisciplinary work in which theoretical and/or experimental linguists cooperate with academics in adjacent fields and work addressing methodological issues is explicitly welcome.
