Scope: This conference is the first in the series "Theoretical and 
Experimental Linguistics" and aims at bringing together theoretical work 
in contemporary syntactic theory with work on the syntactic properties 
displayed by the various types of language disorders. It will center 
around four core concepts of Generative Linguistics: (i) Functional 
Categories (ii) Word Order and Movement (iii) Dependencies within and 
across Sentences and (iv) Interfaces, and will compare the behavior of 
normal and impaired language with respect to each of them. It seeks 
answers to questions such as: What constitutes a deviation from a normal 
system in current syntactic terms? How likely is it to find in normal 
language patterns and behavior encountered in language disorders? What 
do impaired varieties of language have to contribute to contemporary 
syntactic theory?

The conference is open to researchers world-wide, whether from industry 
or academia. Participation will be limited to 100. The emphasis will be 
on discussion about new developments. The conference fee covers 
registration, full board and lodging. Grants will be available, in 
particular for nationals under 35 from EU or Associated States.
