November 27th to 30th, the Research Group Relative Clauses hosted a workshop on relative clauses, sponsored by the Strategic Parnership Program (DAAD) and the Research Group 1783 (DFG).

Sascha Bargmann (Frankfurt): About bear services and flabbergasted building blocks – Applying Soehn’s idiom theory to English data.
Gert Webelhuth (Frankfurt), Sascha Bargmann (Frankfurt) & Christopher Götze (Göttingen): Idioms as evidence for the proper analysis of relative clauses.
Christopher Götze (Göttingen): On Jacobson’s and Barker’s analysis of binding-theoretic reconstruction effects.
The Pronouns@Tübingen 2 workshop in Tübingen from November 7th through November 9th provides a venue for discussion on ongoing research on pronouns in general and, in particular, on pronouns in embedded contexts.
