Meeting Description:

GURT 2004 will focus on syntax, semantics, and computational
linguistics, as pursued from a comparative or cross-linguistic
perspective. We are particularly interested in submissions in the
following areas:

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