======================================================== Constraint Solving and Language Processing - CSLP 2012 - Seventh International Workshop Universite d'Orleans, Orleans, France September 13-14, 2012 http://www.univ-orleans.fr/lifo/evenements/CSLP2012/ ========================================================

Registration is open for the Constraint Solving and Language Processing (CSLP) workshop 2012. Researchers in Linguistics, Computer Science, Psycholinguistics and other related fields are invited to participate to the workshop, which will take place at the Univerity of Orleans (France, 120 km from Paris), on September 13 and 14. This is before SemDial 2012 (SeineDial), the 16th International Workshop on the Semantics and Pragmatics of Dialogue (Paris, September 19-21, 2012) and TAG+11, the 11th International Workshop on Tree Adjoining Grammars and Related Formalisms (Paris, September 26-28, 2012), which may be of interest to the CSLP community.

The registration fees (100 EUR for students and 180 EUR for non-students) cover the electronic proceedings (USB stick), the participation to the coffee breaks, the lunches, the banquet, and the social event (visit of the Chenonceau Royal Castle).

Title: "Grammars as Mechanisms for Real-Time Tree-Growth: Explaining

Clitic Pronouns"

Abstract: In this talk, we argue for a shift of perspective into defining grammars as mechanisms for incremental growth of interpretation reflecting the time-line of processing (Dynamic Syntax: Kempson et al. 2001, Cann et al. 2005, Chatzikyriakidis & Kempson 2011). The core syntactic notion of this framework is that of monotonic context-relative tree growth (following Blackburn & Meyer-Viol 1994), with both content and structural parameters of underspecification and update. Our case study is the puzzle of clitic pronoun clusters of Modern Greek dialects, which illustrate both the low level morphological idiosyncracy of such clusterings, and yet the broad cross-linguistic constraints to which they are subject: these dialects display variants of the so-called Person Case Constraint, a constraint whose generality continues to provide a major challenge for current theoretical frameworks (Adger & Harbour 2007, Heap 2005, among others). We show first how the limits on variation displayed in such clusters are explicable in terms of a constraint debarring more than one underspecified tree relation of a type at a time, a constraint only expressible in a dynamical grammar framework; and we give an analysis of Greek dialectal variation in these terms. Then we explore the consequences of this theoretical perspective, viz. the domain-generality of the system of growth underpinning natural-language syntax; and we will suggest that metrical ambiguities and metrical dissonance displayed in music (Vazan & Schober 2004, London 2012) are subject to the same restriction on real-time structural processing.
