Subject: Acquisition course in Tromsø, Oct 20-24

The Faculty of Humanities at the University of Tromsø will host a
week-long graduate course on language acquisition during the week of
October 20-24, 2003. Students and colleagues from other universities
are welcome -- yea, encouraged -- to participate.

There will be two sub-courses, each having 10 hours of teaching over
the first four days of the course. One sub-course addresses the (first
language) acquisition of phonology while the other addresses the
(second language) acquisition of syntax. The teachers for the courses
are Clara Levelt (Leiden), Paula Fikkert (Nijmegen) and Manfred
Pienemann (Paderborn). On Friday, we will host a Workshop on Language
Acquisition, which is intended primarily as an opportunity for
participants in the course to present their projects.

The course will be financed by Nasjonalforskerutdanningskurs -
Humaniora (NFU-H) and the Center for Advanced Study in Theoretical
Linguistics (CASTL). Unfortunately, we are not able to subsidize
participants, with the exception of inviting you to be the organizers'
guest at a banquet on Friday evening.
