Subject: Linguistics at Durham -- Clarification

In response to the recent LinguistList postings concerning the
Linguistics department at Durham (Issues 14.3155 and 14.3183), some
clarification is in order.

As it currently stands, delicate negotiations are underway between the
University of Durham and the University of Newcastle upon Tyne
concerning the transfer of linguists from Durham to Newcastle. The
full outcome of these negotiations is not yet known, and is partially
dependent on funding from the Higher Education Funding Council for
England (HEFCE). The current intention does not, sadly, involve the
transfer of the whole department; however, we are confident that a
fruitful venture can be established between linguists from Durham and
the highly respected Linguistics Section at Newcastle.

We will let the community of linguists know how things progress!
