This workshop aims at bringing together researchers who are concerned with the argument structure and the temporal/aspectual properties of noun phrases and other nominal constituents in various languages and frameworks. It continues a tradition initiated in France which explains its French acronym: JeNom. JeNom1 was organized at the University of Nancy, JeNom2 at the University of Lille 3, and JeNom3 at the University of Paris 8. These previous editions concentrated on the study of nominalizations, but in JeNom4 we would like to open the discussion to broader questions related to the expression of verbal properties inside the nominal domain. Within the frame of a DAAD-Aurora mobility project between University of Stuttgart, University of Paris 8 and University of Lille 3, this year the workshop will be organized by the project B1 "The structure and interpretation of derived nominals" within the SFB 732 "Incremental specification in context" at the University of Stuttgart.
We invite submissions on any aspect of the study of these problems (morphology, syntax, semantics, and/or interfaces) in various languages and theoretical frameworks. We particularly encourage work that addresses argument structure in nominalizations, as well as the properties of nominalizations derived from stative verbs and/or adjectives.
Each talk will receive 30 minutes for presentation and 10 minutes for discussion. Abstracts should not exceed 2 pages in length (A4 or letter-size), in 12 pt. font, with 1-inch/2,5-cm margins, including examples and references. The language of the submissions and the presentations will be English.
