Message 1: The Surrey Suppletion Database

Subject: The Surrey Suppletion Database

The Surrey Morphology Group announces the availability of a new
typological database, searchable online at

The Surrey Suppletion Database gives detailed information on
suppletion in thirty genetically diverse languages. For each language,
suppletion is described in terms of the features involved and the
semantic category of the lexical item. The database contains pointers
to examples, and there are language reports describing the languages
in the database, giving sources and enabling the user to see how
decisions were made. There are readme files to help users get started.

Those primarily involved were Dunstan Brown, Marina Chumakina,
Greville Corbett and Andrew Hippisley. Several colleagues contributed
their time and expertise on particular languages, and we are extremely
grateful to them: Willem Adelaar, Nicholas Evans, George Hewitt,
Paulette Levy, Marianne Mithun and Larry Trask.

The construction of the database was funded by the Arts and Humanities
Research Board (U.K.) under grant number B/RG/AN4375/APN10619; this
support is gratefully acknowledged.

In addition, an annotated bibliography of suppletion is available at

 ICCL Summer School 2004
 Proof Theory and Automated Theorem Proving

 PCC Workshop 2004

 Technische Universitaet Dresden
 June 14-25, 2004

			Call for Participation

This two-week meeting consists of two integrated parts, a summer
school and a workshop, aimed at graduate students and researchers.
The themes for the summer school are proof theory and automated
theorem proving; the workshop is about proof, computation and
complexity. As in the summer schools at TU Dresden in 2002 and 2003
and in the previous editions of the PCC workshop, people from distinct
but communicating communities will gather in an informal and friendly

We ask for a participation fee of 200 EUR. We request registration
before May 10, 2004; please send an email to
PTEventICCL.TU-Dresden.DE, making sure you include a very brief bio
(5-10 lines) stating your experience, interests, home page (if
available), etc. It will be possible for some students to present
their work: please indicate in your application if you would like to
do so and give us some information about your proposed talk.

We will select applicants in case of excessive demand. A limited
number of grants covering all expenses is available, please indicate
in your application if the only possibility for you to participate is
via a grant. Applications for grants must include an estimate of
travel costs and they should be sent together with the registration.
We will provide assistance in finding an accommodation in Dresden.
