- The syntax of questions
- The pragmatics of questions With our panel we address descriptive and theoretical linguists alike; experienced as well as young researchers; phoneticians, morphologists and syntacticians; linguists working on various Ethiopian language families (Semitic, Cushitic, Omotic, and Nilo-Saharan).
Papers from a comparative and from a dialectological perspective are equally welcome.
