The LINGUIST List is dedicated to providing information on language and language analysis, and to providing the discipline of linguistics with the infrastructure necessary to function in the digital world. LINGUIST is a free resource, run by linguistics students and faculty, and supported primarily by your donations. Please support LINGUIST List during the 2016 Fund Drive.
|Full Title:||19th International Lexical Functional Grammar Conference|
|Location:||Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA|
|Start Date:||17-Jul-2014 - 20-Jul-2014|
|Meeting Email:||click here to access email|
|Meeting Description:||The LFG14 conference aims to promote interaction and collaboration among
researchers interested in non-derivational approaches to grammar, where
grammar is seen as the interaction of (perhaps violable) constraints from
multiple levels of structuring, including those of syntactic categories,
grammatical relations, semantics and discourse.
Further information about LFG as a syntactic theory is available at the
following site: http://www.essex.ac.uk/linguistics/external/LFG/.
LFG14 Invited Speakers:
Rachel Nordlinger (The University of Melbourne)
George Aaron Broadwell (University of Albany, SUNY)
LFG14 will feature a special topic 'Language Documentation and Linguistic
Theory' which will be the focus of the invited talks and a panel during the
LFG14 will be immediately followed by a workshop on 'The Syntax and
Information Structure of Unbounded Dependencies' on 20 July
LFG14 is supported by the National Science Foundation (NSF) with limited
funds for travel and accommodation for graduate students (national and
international). Graduate students can apply for financial support if their
paper or presentation is accepted for the main conference, or if they
present their PhD dissertation. Please contact the local organizers (Damir
Cavar or Malgorzata E. Cavar) for further information on the possible
amount and special conditions for a reimbursement.
