Thiago Chacon (Université de Brasilia, Collegium de Lyon) : "Nominal Categorization : an overview" In this talk I will attempt to define what is nominal categorization and how it is expressed in the lexicon, grammar and discourse. We start with a discussion from a functional perspective and the place of nominal categorization within linguistic structure more generally. Then, we will cover the typical systems of nominal classification, Gender, Noun Classes and Classifiers, highlighting key points in their typology, complementing this picture with new insights based on new data and new questions that have (re)emerged in the last couple of decades. We further address different kinds of nominal categorization systems that are not fully covered in the most widely diffused typologies, exemplifying our enlarged conception of this topic while – at the same time – trying to assess how they relate to the typical nominal classification systems and how they differ from grammatical issues that are not in the realm of nominal categorization. It is hoped that this presentation will help participants to (1) conceive nominal categorization as a linguistic universal along with the varied ways languages may use it in grammar and discourse, and (2) raise questions important for advancing language description and typology in this topic.
