In the spring/summer of 2019, I will give peer-reviewed talks at the eighth installment of the Cambridge Comparative Syntax conference (CamCoS) at the University of Cambridge and the 52nd Annual Meeting of the Societas Linguistica Europæa in Leipzig.
I have recently given a presentation at the third installment of the Formal Approaches to Russian Linguistics workshop at Lomonosov Moscow State University. In my talk, I have tried to adapt an exhaustification analysis of PPI-disjunction to the facts of Russian. An abstract and a set of slides are available here.
I will present my recent work on the PPI-behaviour of the Russian plain disjunction marker ili at the 33rd annual meeting of the Israel Association for Theoretical Linguistics. In the talk, I argue that that behaviour as well as the apparent exceptions can be derived from the phrasal versus clausal character of the disjunction, and the status of Russian as a negative concord language.
I’m Pavel Rudnev, and this is my personal website. I’m a postdoctoral research fellow in linguistics in the School of Linguistics at the National Research University Higher School of Economics in Moscow. My main area of interest is syntax and its interfaces with sound and meaning. In particular, my current research revolves around the interpretation of disjunction under negation crosslinguistically (syntax-semantics interface), agreement and case in East Caucasian languages (morphosyntax), and the syntax-to-phonology mapping in Russian Sign Language.
