Research Network for Referential Categories in Spanish and other Romance Languages (NEREUS)

   
The NEREUS research network serves to establish contacts between researchers in Europe and overseas, who are currently working on referential categories in Romance languages. In particular, we are interested in the syntax-semantics-interface with respect to the grammatical realization of animacy, specificity, definiteness and related categories.

The research network also encourages readers to communicate directly with authors and other subscribers concerning their own and others' research. To facilitate this we publish detailed author contact information including email addresses for authors of each paper. See below for Workshops and Conference Proceedings. You can find older websites here and here.

NEREUS was founded in 2002 in Konstanz to spearhead new initiatives in linguistic research.
