Subject: Leipzig Particle Workshop

The University of Leipzig (Germany) is holding a workshop on 
verb-particle constructions. The talks deal with various aspects 
(including syntax, semantics, morphology, production, processing) of 
particle verbs and related phenomena using data from various Germanic 
languages. The workshop will take place from Friday, 4th February 
2000 until Sunday, 6th. The talks on the Friday will be held in the 
Neuer Senatssaal (Ritterstrasse 26) and on the remaining days in the
