WORKSHOP: GENERATIVE APPROACHES TO FINNIC LANGUAGES
Organized by Katrin Hiietam (University of Manchester) and Elsi Kaiser

The aims are to investigate and increase general awareness of the
structure of Finnic languages (Finnish, Estonian, Sami, Veps,
Livonian, etc.) from a synchronic and diachronic point of view, to
present new data on the topic, and to bring together scholars working
on issues on Finnic linguistics.

We welcome typological descriptive papers as well as papers from any
theoretical framework.

WORKSHOP: BILINGUAL BEHAVIOR IN TEENAGE GROUPS
Organized by Jens Normann J�rgensen, K�benhavns Universitet

The study af teenage language has been gaining momentum in Scandinavia
over the past couple of years. Particularly studies of teenagers' use
of second languages (e.g. Norwegian L1 speaking teenagers salting
their speech with English expressions, or Turkish speaking minority
teenagers mixing with Danish). In this workshop I propose that
specific studies of bilingual behavior be presented and discussed. I
plan to invite Emel T�rker, Oslo, Kari Fraurud, Bergen, Jacob
Cromdal, Link�ping, Sally Boyd, Gothenburg, Lian Madsen, Janus
M�ller, Trine Esdahl, all Copenhagen.

Persons wishing to submit abstracts should contact the organizer at

WORKSHOP: SYNTACTIC VARIATION ACROSS LINGUISTIC REGISTERS OF CORPORA
Organized by Jos� Deulofeu, Dept. of French Linguistics, Universit�
Aix-Marseille I

The workshop welcomes papers relevant to syntactic variation in the
sense explored by D. Biber. According to this approach, it has been
shown in many cases syntactic constructions which could be considered
mere syntactic variants (e.g. relative clauses with and without
complementizers in English) are not randomly distributed in samples of
corpora belonging to different linguistic registers
(e.g. conversation, scientific prose, news, fiction).

Appropriate papers might present broad data patterns from corpora or
focus more narrowly on individual constructions.

Abstracts should be sent to jose.deulofeuwanadoo.fr
