The 6th Workshop on Nominalizations

Les 6èmes Journées d’Étude sur les Nominalisations

Verona (Italy), June 30-July 1, 2015


2nd Call for papers : deadline 10 avril 2015

The JENom workshops originate in France, which explains its French acronym (Journées d’Études sur les Nominalisations). The first five editions were held in Nancy, Lille, Paris 8, Stuttgart and Barcelona. This year’s JeNom will be organized by the University of Verona and the University of Bologna, and will be held in Verona on June 30-July 1, 2015.

JENom traditionally aims at bringing together researchers who are concerned with the morphology, syntax and semantics of nominalizations of eventive verbs. However, recent editions significantly broadened the focus of the workshop so as to include a larger variety of related topics and constructs. JENom6 will continue along these lines.

We invite submissions on morphological, syntactic and/or semantic aspect of the study of nominals – nouns, nominalizations, noun phrases – in various languages and theoretical frameworks. Topics include, but are not limited to the following:

1) Structure and semantics of nominals

–          Morphologically complex nouns

  • Semantic (/Aktionsart) classes of deverbal nouns

Psychological / perception / state verbs and derived nouns

Causation in derived nouns

  • Deadjectival and denominal nouns: morphological, syntactic and semantic properties
  • Noun compounding, noun incorporation, noun reduplication

–          Underived nouns with event semantics

2) The features of nominals

–          Declension class

–          Gender

–          Number

–          Case

3) Morphosyntax and semantics of nominals in broader constructions

–          Light verb constructions

–          Cognate object constructions

–          Construct state constructions


Each talk will receive 30 minutes for presentation and 10 minutes for discussion. Abstracts should be anonymous and should not exceed 2 pages in length (A4 or letter-size), in 12 pt. font, with 1-inch/2,5-cm margins, including examples and references. The language of the submissions and the presentations will be English.
