Cambridge Comparative Syntax (CamCoS)

CamCoS (short for Cambridge Comparative Syntax) is a series of conferences that was initially (2012-2017) organised by the ReCoS project. Since 2018, it has continued as a conference co-organised by the University of Cambridge and Anglia Ruskin University.

CamCoS is an explicitly comparatively oriented syntax conference. It runs over two-and-a-half days and features both invited and peer-reviewed speakers.

The topics for the CamCoS conferences so far:

  • CamCoS 1 Ergativity
  • CamCoS 2 Focus
  • CamCoS 3 Variation in morphophonological, morphosyntactic and morphosemantic domains
  • CamCoS 4 Null arguments and phi-features
  • CamCoS 5 Comparative generative syntax today
  • CamCoS 6 Comparative generative syntax today
  • CamCoS 7 Comparative generative syntax today
  • CamCoS 8 Comparative perspectives on phases
  • CamCoS 9 New Where is the variation: syntax or PF?
