Call for Papers: Modal Particles in Romance Languages

1–2 June 2023

CLUL — Centro de Linguística da Universidade de Lisboa (Lisbon, Portugal)


This two-days meeting brings together researchers on modal particles in Romance languages with the aim of discussing and elucidating the presence and the properties of modal particles in this language family.

We hope that this workshop will stimulate research on these elements, and it will lead to greater clarity on the distribution of modal particles in Romance languages, as well as on their formal and functional features.


We invite contributions on modal particles in Romance languages, including dialects and non-standard varieties: case studies on single elements, papers that adopt a comparative approach and papers that address relevant theoretical issues are all welcomed.

Please send your anonymous abstracts (max. 500 words, excluding references) to by 15 January 2023.
