Featured Linguist!

Jost Gippert: Our Featured Linguist!

"Buenos dias", "buenas noches" -- this was the first words in a foreign language I heard in my life, as a three-year old boy growing up in developing post-war Western Germany, where the first gastarbeiters had arrived from Spain. Fascinated by the strange sounds, I tried to get to know some more languages, the only opportunity being TV courses of English and French -- there was no foreign language education for pre-teen school children in Germany yet in those days.

Meeting Description: After the success of the two previous CamCoS conferences (see: http://www-falcon.csx.cam.ac.uk/site/RECOS/conference), we are happy to announce that CamCoS 3 is going to take place on 8-10 May 2014.

The first half day will feature talks by Cambridge-based researchers, followed by a full-day general session on comparative generative syntax. The final day of the conference will feature a themed session with invited speakers on the topic of variation in the morphophonological, morphosyntactic and morphosemantic domains. In relation to the themed session, the central
question we would like to address is to what extent it is possible to provide a formal account of cross-linguistic variation in the domain of morphology. Please see the conference website (http://www-falcon.csx.cam.ac.uk/site/RECOS/conference/camcos-3/camcos3-info) for more specific details of the types of questions we would like to consider in this connection.

The invited speakers for CamCoS 3 are:

Iris Berent (Northeastern University)
Phil Branigan (Memorial University)
Dunstan Brown (University of York)
Nigel Duffield (Konan University)
Daniel Harbour (Queen Mary, University of London) - TBC
Martina Wiltschko (University of British Columbia)
