We are very excited to let you know that the book entitled The Semantics of Gradability, Vagueness, and Scale Structure: Experimental Perspectives, co-edited by Elena Castroviejo, Louise McNally and Galit W. Sassoon, and partially supported by the MEAT project, is finally out! The volume has been published in the Springer series “Language, Cognition, and Mind”, and it was inspired by the talks presented at the workshop of the same name that took place at the Instituto de Lengua, Literatura y Antropología of the Spanish National Research Council in Madrid on May 28th and 29th, 2015.
We hope you find it interesting. Don’t hesitate to spread the word!
Following up on our previous post A book supported by MEAT is presented at the CGG in Alcalá, here is the leaflet of the co-edited book Boundaries, Phases and Interfaces. Case Studies in Honor of Violeta Demonte, published in John Benjamin’s series Linguistik Aktuell. On behalf of Olga Fernández-Soriano and Isabel Pérez-Jiménez, with whom Elena co-edited this volume, here’s our acknowledgment to all the authors who contributed with their papers and to the reviewers who helped improve the book in all its respects.
As always, the research underlying this publication was partially supported by project FFI2015-66732-P, funded by the Ministry of Economy and Competitiveness (MINECO) and the European Regional Development Fund (FEDER, UE), the IT769-13 Research Group (Basque Government), and UFI11/14 (University of the Basque Country, UPV/EHU).
The 27th Colloquium on Generative Grammar [27CGG] was organized at the Universidad de Alcalá [UAH] by MEAT colleagues and friends Manuel Leonetti, Silvia Gumiel-Molina, Norberto Moreno-Quibén and Isabel Pérez-Jiménez. Right before the Business Meeting, Olga Fernández-Soriano, Isabel Pérez-Jiménez and Elena Castroviejo had the joy of presenting the book they have co-edited (with the support of MEAT and Ikerbasque), entitled Boundaries, phases and interfaces. Case studies in honor of Violeta Demonte and published by the John Benjamin’s series Linguistik Aktuell / Linguistics Today. We were very happy and proud to share some memories of the 24th CGG, unveil the table of contents of the book and thank all its contributors, including authors and reviewers. It was especially nice to be able to give a copy of the book to Violeta and celebrate this event surrounded by the theoretical linguistics community which gathered in Alcalá.
By the way, it was announced that the 28th CGG will be hosted by the Universitat Rovira i Virgili and organized by another MEAT friend, Isabel Oltra-Massuet!
