    Campus Tertre

Wh-words appear in various constructions within and across languages (e.g., interrogatives, headed and free relative clauses, modal existential constructions, correlatives, clefts), raising the question of how their denotation varies and relates across these constructions. Building on the workshop held in September 2018, this follow-up meeting investigates the semantics of various multiple wh- constructions with (i) two and more wh-words or (ii) two wh-words plus a quantifier. More information, abstracts and handouts can be found here.
