***THIRD (and last) CALL FOR PAPERS***

The German Association for Catalan Studies (Deutscher
Katalanistenverband e.V.) calls for paper proposals for a linguistic
panel on

VERBAL PERIPHRASES IN ROMANCE LANGUAGES
IN THE LIGHT OF CURRENT GRAMMATICAL THEORIES

to be held within the 27th German Conference on Romance Languages at
Ludwig-Maximilians University in Munich (Germany), October 7th - 10th,
2001.


This panel is intended to focus on all synchronic and diachronic aspects
of periphrastic expression of time, aspect and modality in Romance and
welcomes contributions with different theoretical backgrounds.
Approaches to the description and explanation of verbal periphrases'
development and functions may be formal as well as functional,
typological or cognitive. The panel takes Catalan and the other
Ibero-Romance languages as a starting point, but all Romance languages
(including Romance-based creoles) may be considered.

Anna Gavarr� (Aut�noma University of Barcelona)
Hella Olbertz (University of Leiden)
