PALC 2001 (PRACTICAL APPLICATIONS IN LANGUAGE CORPORA)

(Department of English Language, Lodz University)



AIMS

The Department of English Language at Lodz University plans to hold the 3rd
international conference devoted to PRACTICAL APPLICATIONS IN LANGUAGE
CORPORA. The general topic of the conference is the relationship between
language corpora and their uses in a range of language and linguistic
fields. Our aim is to provide a forum for practical exemplifications of
language corpora (written and spoken) in action and a forum for fruitful
interaction between scholars. Hopefully, such a conference will act as a
stimulus to teaching, and to scholarly and critical research.

The conference will be held over 3 days, 7 to 9 September 2001 (arrival day
6 September) at the Lodz University Conference Centre. We expect
approximately 120 participants from Poland and Central Europe, Western

Message 2: Texas Linguistic Society Conference - 2001 TLS

Date: Tue, 7 Nov 2000 13:29:35 -0600
From: William Griffin <wgriffinmail.utexas.edu>
Subject: Texas Linguistic Society Conference - 2001 TLS

2001 Texas Linguistic Society Conference
The Role of Agreement in Natural Language
March 2-4
University of Texas at Austin

TLS 2001 Call for Papers

The role of agreement in natural language is an issue of current interest
and debate in many subfields of linguistics including morphology, syntax,
semantics, and language acquisition, and poses a number of empirical and
theoretical problems for all frameworks of linguistic theory. The aim of
this conference will be to share research findings and proposals on the
role of agreement in relation to a number of current issues in these areas
and interface issues between these areas including the role of agreement in
morphology and the lexicon, the problem of "dis-agreement" effects, the
role of agreement in the theory of clause structure and Universal Grammar,
the role of agreement in semantic interpretation, and the role of agreement
in language acquisition in relation to these areas.

We invite abstracts on original, unpublished work in any of these areas as
they relate to the role of agreement in natural language.

Invited Keynote Speakers

Hilda Koopman, UCLA
	The Locality of Agreement
Margeret Speas, UMASS
	Functional Categories and the Syntax-Pragmatics Interface
Sandy Chung, UC-Santa Cruz
	The Two Faces of Agreement
