    The fourth Dynamic Syntax Conference will be held in Oxford, UK on 22nd - 23rd May 2020.

    Call for abstracts:
    Dynamic Syntax is a grammar formalism that directly models the dynamics of parsing and production in real-time. On this view, linguistic knowledge is the ability to process (parse and produce) language, incrementally, in context, where syntax is recast as sets of constraints on the incremental building up of semantic and contextual representations from words encountered in a linguistic string.

    The 4th Dynamic Syntax Conference will bring together those using Dynamic Syntax in their research, as well as those interested in the empirical, computational, or theoretical issues surrounding Dynamic Syntax and its use.  We also especially welcome papers that engage with issues relating to parsing-based approaches to the representation of natural language, incremental systems of grammar, and/or the syntax-semantics and syntax-pragmatic interfaces, as well as papers that compare other formalisms to Dynamic Syntax (formal properties, problematic phenomena, etc).

    Anonymous abstracts of up to 500 words (including references) can be submitted via easychair:

    Important dates:
        Abstract submission: February 26th 2020
