Workshop: Reciprocals cross-linguistically

February 2nd, 2007
Utrecht, The Netherlands

The workshop Reciprocals cross-linguistically (syntax and semantics) took place on the morning and afternoon of Friday, 2 February. There were language-specific, descriptively oriented presentations (focusing on properties or issues of theoretical interest) as well as more theoretical talks.

The workshop is associated with the research project A typology of reciprocal markers: Analysis and documentation, a collaboration of the Utrecht institute of Linguistics OTS and the Free University of Berlin.
