Subject: 19th Century Documents illustrating Lorraine and Walloon dialects.

- I have published on the W3 two texts dating from the beginning of the
XIXth century and illustrating Lorraine and Walloon dialects. These
documents come from a great linguistic survey on the languages spoken in
France launched by napoleonic Administration.

Message 2: Graduate Programs in Linguistics 2000-2001

Graduate Programs in Linguistics 2000-2001
University of Tromsoe

The Linguistics Department at the University of Tromsoe, Norway, offers the
following English-taught graduate programs:
	1. a one year program giving a specialization in Scandinavian
	 generative syntax and phonology,
	2. a two years program leading to a Master of Philosophy degree,
	3. a three years program leading to a Ph.D. degree.

The programs are open to students from all countries. For the programs
1 and 2 students should have a background in linguistics corresponding
to a B.A. with a major in linguistics. For the Ph.D. program the
students should have a background corresponding to an M.A. in
linguistics.

There is no tuition. A limited number of grants are available for
students from Eastern Europe or developing countries.

The one-year program is designed to prepare students for research in
generative syntax and phonology with special attention to the
Scandinavian languages. It consists of lectures, seminars, and
tutorials. The students write two shorter papers in the fall and one
longer paper in the spring.

The M.Phil. program puts special emphasis on the comparative
perspective in syntax and phonology. The first year consists of course
work, mostly the same as for the one-year program. In the second year
the students write a thesis, often on a topic relating to their native
language. In general, in all of our programs, students are encouraged
to work on their native language, especially in the case of less well
known or less well studied languages.

The Ph.D. program consists of course work and a Ph.D. dissertation.
For students who wish to pursue higher studies in generative
linguistics these programs offer an opportunity to acquire a solid
grounding in recent models in generative phonology and syntax, applied
to a variety of languages, including the Scandinavian languages, a
group of languages which have proven to be a fruitful area of research
using recently developed grammatical models.

Instruction is in English. Proficiency in Norwegian or any other
Scandinavian language is not required, nor is any previous knowledge
of Scandinavian grammar. Those who wish may follow a course in
Norwegian for foreigners.

The teachers are Anders Holmberg, Peter Svenonius, Knut Tarald
Taraldsen, Oystein Vangsnes (syntax), Curt Rice, Ove Lorentz
(phonology), Thorbjoerg Hroarsdottir (Icelandic and historical
syntax). Linguists from other departments and universities are invited
to contribute at various points.

The deadline for applications for the year 2000-2001 is February 1,
2000 for those who wish to be considered for a grant, May 1 for
others. For application forms and further information, contact
