Meeting Description:

Invited Speakers:

Jean Lowenstamm, University of Paris 7
Zeljko Boskovic, University of Connecticut

This workshop is about empty elements in syntax and phonology, which played an important role in theories predating the minimalist program and optimality theory. We want to investigate in how far the theories that accounted for the typology and distribution of these elements are still relevant for our present-day thinking, and to what extent our current insights shed new light on this issue.

Sounds of Silence Conference, Tilburg

We are happy to announce the updated program for our Workshop ''Sounds of Silence: Empty Elements in Syntax and Phonology'' taking place at Tilburg University, 19-22 October 2005.
