VIIIth meeting of the International Clinical Phonetics and Linguistics
16-19 August 2000
John MacIntyre Centre, Edinburgh, Scotland

hosted by the Department of Speech & Language Sciences, Queen Margaret
University College, Edinburgh

The purpose of the VIIIth meeting of the International Clinical Phonetics
and Linguistics Association (ICPLA), which will take place in Edinburgh in
the year 2000, is to provide a forum for those who are interested in
applying the techniques of phonetic and linguistic analysis to clinical
data, with a view to exploring theories of disordered or normal language.
We hope to make it an exciting and fruitful occasion for all those involved,
or seeking to be involved, in this field.

Speech production, speech perception, linguistic theory and language
disorder, psycholinguistics and aphasia, developmental psycholinguistics,
neurology and language. Abstracts of papers or posters will be welcomed on
any of these themes and on the application of any of the conventional areas
of linguistics (phonetics, phonology, syntax, semantics, pragmatics) to the
analysis of disordered speech and language.

Message 2: Generative Linguistics in Poland

Date: Tue, 29 Jun 1999 02:11:28 +0200
From: Piotr Banski <>
Subject: Generative Linguistics in Poland

 (syntactic meeting)

Dates: 13-14 November, 1999
Location: Warszawa

Sponsored by:
Institute of English Studies, University of Warsaw
Institute of Computer Science, Polish Academy of Sciences


GLiP is meant to bring together generative syntacticians from all
university and research centres of Poland in an attempt to facilitate
interaction and collaboration between them in a friendly and informal
atmosphere, possibly on a regular basis. It is definitely time for us
to get to know one another and learn what we work on, what
theoretical approaches we use and what data we describe; the task of
GLiP is to help us in this respect.

We invite abstracts on any aspect of generative syntax in any
generative approach: P&P (Minimalism, GB), HPSG, LFG, OT, etc. Talks
will be organized around major syntactic topics, depending on the
content of the submissions.

Two categories of talks are initially planned: standard (20 minutes +
10 minute discussion) and extended (30 minutes + 15 minute
discussion). The extra time will be devoted to introducing the basic
machinery of the given branch of generative syntax for those not
familiar with it. At the end of every session, a 15/20 minute general
discussion is planned.

Languages of the workshop are English (because we consider it the
lingua franca of generative syntax) and Polish. This does not mean,
however, that the audience is to be limited to English and Polish
philologists. Quite on the contrary - we count on meeting _anyone_
who works within the generative tradition, and therefore we request
that you forward this Call For Papers to other linguistic departments
at your academic institution. Ph.D. and M.A. students are also warmly

During the workshop, we hope to arrange a separate short session
devoted to discussion of proposals for Polish generative syntactic

A volume of proceedings is also planned.
