The 5th meeting, ILCAA Joint Research Project “A Crosslinguistic Study of Nominalizer-final Constructions: The ‘Cogitation Process’ Approach”

At the meeting to be held on the 8th and 9th November, we shall continue to examine the results of research that has been conducted so far. Also, relevant members will report on the results of their recent fieldwork. We shall continue to investigate the relevance of the “Cognitive Process” to the nominalizer-final constructions in the languages under study, and also to ascertain the characteristics of the nominalizer-final constructions in individual languages. We intend to hold a workshop next year to report the findings of this project. Therefore, at this meeting we shall start the planning for the proposed workshop.
