Subject: Role and Reference Grammar Workshop & Conference at LSA Institute


A workshop and conference on Role and Reference Grammar will be held
at the LSA Summer Institute at the University of Illinois, July 23-25,
1999. The workshop is for linguists already working in RRG as well as
those wishing to become better acquainted with the theory. There will
be two parts to the workshop. First, there will be a series of
introductory lectures on the basics of RRG for those not yet
acquainted with the theory. Second, there will be a series of working
sessions for linguists already familiar with RRG; some of the sessions
will be focussed on particular topics, e.g. argument structure, the
semantics of complex sentences, the psycholinguistic and
neurolinguistic implications of RRG, and some will be devoted to
specific languages or families, e.g. Korean, Japanese, Austronesian.

There will be a one-day conference at which current work in RRG will
be presented. Talks will be 30 minutes long. Please send three
copies of your abstract (2 pages maximum), which should include your
name, e-mail address and regular address, by March 1, 1999 to the
following address:
