Variation and Change in the Verb Phrase

The Language Change Research Group at the University of Oslo invites abstracts for the workshop Variation and Change in the Verb Phrase. The focus of this workshop is on syntactic change in the verbal domain, ranging from changes at earlier language stages to recent and ongoing changes in typologically different languages.

Keynote Speakers:

Elena Anagnostopoulou (University of Crete)

Peter Petré (University of Antwerp)

The purpose of the workshop is to bring together researchers who work on verbal syntax from a historical perspective from different theoretical orientations. We particularly welcome abstracts related, but not limited, to any aspects of syntactic change and/or the (interaction of the) following topics:

* Benefactive constructions

* Particle verb constructions

* Reflexive constructions

* Resultative constructions
