The aim of this workshop is to gather together scholars and students studying copulas from all domains of linguistic analysis. We have adopted a broad definition of copula including attributive, ascriptive, identificational, equative, locative and existential sentences. Contributions may address one or more of the following subjects:

• Copular taxonomy;
• The semantics of copular items;
• Dropping, omission deletion or absence of copulas;
• Copula variation due to semantic and/or syntactic factors;
• Copulas in pidgin and creoles;
• Emergence of copular items – the copula cycle;
• Copulas in first and second language acquisition;
• Micro-variation: comparative studies of the copular systems in typologically related languages, languages pertaining to the same dialect cluster, or even in different registers of the same language;
• Multi-copula systems;

All papers will be allocated 20 minutes plus 10 minutes for discussion.

Invited speakers:
Alessandro Panunzi (University of Firenze)
Andrea Moro (IUSS – Pavia) “Landmarks in the history of the copula”
