Meeting Description: The Georgetown University Round Table on
Languages and Linguistics (GURT) is an annual linguistics conference
that has been held at Georgetown since 1949. It began as a gathering
for discussions of issues in all fields of linguistics, and over time
has developed into a more specialized forum. This year GURT will focus
on the fields of syntax, semantics, and computational
linguistics. GURT 2004 will include both invited presentations and
submitted papers. We welcome any topics in syntax, semantics, and
computational linguistics, as pursued from a comparative or
cross-linguistic perspective. We are particularly interested in
submissions in the following areas:

 o The syntax and semantics of clause types
 o Syntactic variation across varieties of English
 o The internal structure of the noun phrase
 o Negation, negative polarity, and negative concord
 o Tense and aspect in formal and/or computational semantics
 o Microvariation in the left periphery of the clause
 o Linguistic typology for machine translation

These areas are of special interest to faculty and students at
Georgetown, and we anticipate that there will be special sessions
devoted to them. For more details, please visit
