Fr 22.10., 12:15-13:45: Marco Biasio (Padua): Control, Discourse Participants, and Tempo-Aspectual Fluctuations in Slavic Performatives


Mi 3.11., 12:30-14:00: Ora Matushansky (CNRS/Paris 8): On the theme of Russian deverbal nouns
Abstract: Any hypothesis linking Russian verbal theme vowels to v, be it the functional head introducing the event argument of the verb or that contributing the external argument, predicts some correlation between its presence in deverbal nominalizations (ing- and er-nouns) and their semantics. My goal in this talk is to provide some discussion of this prediction.


Fr 12.11., 12:15-13:45: Björn Wiemer, Joanna Wrzesień-Kwiatkowska & Alexander Rostovtsev-Popiel (Mainz): Grammatical integration of n/t-participles of secondary imperfectives in Polish and Russian
(ursprünglich für den FDSL-14 Workshop 'Secondary Imperfectives in Slavic' vorgesehen)


Mi 24.11., 12:30-14: Marcin Wągiel (Brno): Part-whole structures across domains: Slavic derived spatial and social collective nouns

Abstract: In this paper, I examine two types of Slavic derived collective nouns, namely spatial collectives such as Polish kwiecie `clump of flowers, blossom' and social collectives like duchowieństwo `collective of priests, clergy'. While the former refer to collections of objects perceived as coherent spatial configurations, the latter denote groups of human individuals performing a salient social role. Building on Grimm (2012) and Zobel (2017), I propose an analysis that treats the Slavic derived collective nouns in question as predicates true of spatial and social clusters, respectively. The proposal extends mereotopology to the abstract domain of social roles.

Fr 03.12., 12:15-13:45: Uliana Yazhinova (HU Berlin): Sprachliche Zweifelsfälle im Russischen


Mi 15.12., 12:30-14: Tomasz Łuszczek (Warsaw): Opacity and Podhale Goralian


Mi 19.1., 12:30-14: Dagmara Grabska Klaus Abels (UCL): The direct object is always low: the structure of ditransitive VPs in Polish

In this talk we propose a structural analysis of Polish ditransitive VPs according to which the direct object (DO) is generated lower than the indirect object (IO) regardless of the linear order between the two arguments and stays low. Using evidence from focus projection, predicate clefts and idioms, we support the view that IO-DO is the neutral order of Polish ditransitives and that it is associated with a rightward descending verbal shell structure (contra Bailyn’s 2010 account of Russian ditransitives and in accordance with Wiland’s 2009 and Łęska’s 2019 account of Polish ditransitives). Unlike Wiland and Łęska, who analyse the DO-IO order as being derived from IO-DO by leftward movement of the DO, we entertain a simple rightward ascending structure for this order. Preliminary evidence for this structure comes from quantifier scope interactions, as well as the order and scope of adverbs.
