Beschreibung This summer school is about the mapping between form and meaning. The idea that the form of a sentence reflects its meaning or the other way round is challenged by formal elements that are not reflected in the decomposition of meaning or by the presence of meaning components without straightforward exponents in the form of linguistic expressions. The lectures in this summer school introduce to the contribution of current advancements in linguistic theory and empirical research to the understanding of such form-meaning mismatches and examine a wide range of related phenomena such as agreement, negative and other types of concord, silent semantic operators, meaning enrichment through pragmatic reasoning, and the complex syntactic and semantic properties of particles.

This Summer School is part of a series of Summer Schools in Linguistics devoted to current theoretical and empirical advancements in Linguistic Research. Topics of previous Summer Schools were:

2015: Göttingen Spirit Summer School on Negation
2016: Göttingen Spirit Summer School on Complex Clauses
2017: Historical Linguistics with a focus on speech acts and sentence types

The lectures will be offered by international experts and scholars at the Göttingen University. The target audience consists of students and young researchers interested on morphology, syntax, semantics, pragmatics, linguistic theory, linguistic typology. The participants will have opportunities to present their research or research interests in talks and poster presentations.
