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 URL: http://lfg-conference.org/
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 conference.

LFG14 will be immediately followed by a workshop on 'The Syntax and Information Structure of Unbounded Dependencies' on 20 July (http://lfg-conference.org/program/workshop/index.html).

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.
