Valency classes in the world's languages
August 14-15, 2013

Date: August 14-15, 2013

Coordinated by Iren Hartmann & Martin Haspelmath

The Valency Project database is scheduled to be launched in August 2013, and on this occasion we are meeting to discuss valency classes in a cross-linguistic perspective.

The workshop will take place on August 14-15 in Leipzig, just before the biennial conference of the Association for Linguistic Typology. It will be open for anyone to attend.

The workshop will start by introducing and officially launching the valency project database. Then there will be two or three papers with generalizations over the data. And last but not least, those project contributors who will be able to attend are invited to give a talk on the language of their expertise, focusing on some particular phenomenon or analysis, or of course on a comparative topic.
