It's about time:
Theoretical and experimental perspectives on tense, aspect, modality and events

July 18-19, 2003 at the LSA Linguistic Institute

Invited Speakers

Michael Walsh Dickey
Northwestern University

Mark Steedman
University of Edinburgh

A particularly active area of research in current linguistic theory is the syntax and semantics of Tense, Aspect, Modality and Events. It often takes some time for theoretical advances to influence psycholinguistic work, in part because communication between linguists and psycholinguists is not always optimal. Results from formal work on Tense, Aspect, Modality, and Events seem especially likely to lead to significant experimental and computational work. For this reason, we have planned a 2 day workshop designed to bring together researchers from both linguistics and psycholinguistics who are working on on these topics, and we invite you to participate.
