Meeting Description: One important aspect in spoken, written and signed discourse is the proper management and interpretation of discourse referents. Consequently, the resolution of co-reference has been one of the most investigated and at the same time most challenging topics in linguistic research on spoken languages. Earlier research on sign languages has shown that the anaphoric links, due to the peculiarities of the visual-gestural modality, can be established overtly in the signing space and therefore leave little space for ambiguities in anaphora resolution. However, with a semantic and pragmatic turn in sign language linguistics and a corresponding growing interest in discourse analysis, it has recently been shown that the ambiguities attested for spoken languages exist in a great amount in sign languages as well. This workshop combines theoretical approaches with typological and experimental ones in order to yield a better understanding of anaphoric relations across languages and language modalities.

This workshop combines theoretical approaches with typological and experimental ones in order to yield a better understanding of anaphoric relations across languages and language modalities. It aims at bringing together junior and senior researchers from different sub-fields of linguistics, working on anaphora resolution from various perspectives.

The languages of the workshop are English and ASL/IS. Interpretation between English and ASL/IS will be provided.
