Linguistic Evidence 2016

Empirical, Theoretical, and Computational Perspectives

Hosted by the SFB 833 'The Construction of Meaning'
University of Tübingen, Germany

18th to 20th February 2016

The Linguistic Evidence conference series is a meeting place for linguists who wish to improve the empirical adequacy of linguistic theory and linguistic analysis. A central aim is to more closely integrate data-driven and theory-driven approaches to the study of language systems, language behaviour, and language functions. Interdisciplinary work in which linguistics cooperate with academics in adjacent fields is particularly welcome. The first Linguistic Evidence was held in 2004, the 2016 conference will be the eighth conference.

Special Session: Semantics and pragmatics interface phenomena – theory building and testing

Invited Speakers:

Harald R. Baayen (University of Tübingen)

Mante Nieuwland (University of Edinburgh)

Christiane von Stutterheim (University of Heidelberg)

Tessa Warren (University of Pittsburgh)
