Call for Papers

Main session

  • Abstract submissions are invited for oral presentations and poster presentations.
  • Each oral presentation will be 30 minutes, followed by a 15-minute discussion period.


Since the earliest days of generative syntax, complementation has been the central subject of intense debate. Generative works on complementation have followed two primary strands of research. One is to examine the nature of the selectional requirements imposed on embedding predicates and their complements. The other is to delve into diverse empirical phenomena in the domain of clausal embedding. Along with this issue, non-complementation has also received a great deal of attention in the literature. One of the widely discussed topics concerning non-complementation is the Internally Headed Relative Clause (IHRC) constructions, which differ in form as well as meaning from the Externally Headed Relative Clause (EHRC) construction.

Some instances of specific topics on (non-)complementation include the following:

  • Are all the clausal complements embedded as an argument by their matrix selector? (Moulton 2009)
  • Does clausal complementation involve modal or reportative operators? (Bhatt 1999, Faller 2007)
  • Are embedded clauses combined with their matrix predicates through conjunction? (Pietroski 2005).
  • When do root phenomena occur in subordinate clauses? (Hooper and Thompson 1973, Haegeman 2014)
  • What pragmatic/semantic conditions license an IHRC and how can we describe them in formal terms? (Kuroda 1976, Fuji 1998)
  • Is the IHRC construction parallel to other subordinate constructions? (Kim 2018)

The workshop aims to provide an opportunity to discuss any issues concerning complementation and to explore new instantiations of and restrictions on (non- )complementation.

  • Abstract submissions are invited for oral presentations on issues having to do with the workshop theme “(Non-)complementation”.
  • Each oral presentation will be 30 minutes, followed by a 15-minute discussion period.
