This workshop aims at bringing together linguists working within different theoretical frameworks in order to update our understanding of the cross-linguistic diversity of the antipassive and antipassive-like constructions across the world’s languages. This includes such aspects as morphosyntactic properties of the arguments of the antipassive construction, the antipassive verbal markers, morphosyntactic factors determining the structural realization of antipassives, as well as the functions these constructions perform crosslinguistically.
