From the IEAS, Sascha Barmann and Manfred Sailer participated. Sascha presented a joint post with Doug Arnold (Essex) on “Idiom Licensing in Non-restrictive Relative Clauses“.  They show that under certain conditions an idiom can be split between a main clause and a non-restrictive relative clause. They provide a formal modelling of these cases. Sascha will present this research in the Oberseminar October 24, 2016.
