Subject: Minimalist Syntax Archives

Friends and Colleagues,

The Department of Linguistics at the University of Arizona is proud to
announce the grand opening of two new resources for theoretical syntacticians.

	1) The Minimalist Syntax Homepage
	2) The Arizona Minimalist Syntax Archives (AMSA)

Both of these can be accessed through the following URL:

AMSA, inspired by the Rutgers OT archive, is a place for researchers
in Chomskyan syntax (broadly construed to include interface issues,
such as Syntax/Semantics, Syntax/Morphology, Syntax/Psycholinguistics etc.)
to store their unpublished papers for distribution to the greater 
linguistics community. In addition the Arizona Minimalist Syntax Archives
contains links (sorry no downloads) and citations to many published works
in Minimalism.

You are cordially invited to submit your work for inclusion on the archive.
Instructions can be found on the archive homepage.

The Minimalist Syntax Homepage will (soon) contain links to researchers and 
Universities working in Minimalism, as well as basic foundational information
on the theory. Again, researchers are cordially invited to contribute
to the construction of this page.

We hope these pages will be of use to you!


Andrew Carnie
