Short abstract

The goal of this workshop is to discuss constraints on the workings of coercion operators that are needed in different parts of grammar, not only in semantics, pragmatics, but also in morphology, syntax, phonology and in computational linguistics. What are the similarities and differences in the coercive operations across these different domains?
