This workshop will be held at the Department of Linguistics at the University of Konstanz in room Y311.

Background: The International Workshop "Dimensions of Grammar" is organized in honor of Paul Kiparsky, who is Robert M. and Anne T. Bass Professor in the School of Humanities and Sciences at Stanford University, and is spending the Summer Semester 2011 in Konstanz as a Senior Fellow of the Zukunftskolleg. Paul Kiparsky’s work has shown in a particularly clear way to the research community how an integrated approach to the different dimensions of language opens up new perspectives on long-standing problems. This is particularly true in the study of complex processes involving multiple factors, such as language change phenomena, and the shaping of linguistic areas and, more in general, of linguistic diversity.
