International Society for Greek Linguistics
Message 1: International Society for Greek Linguistics
From: Napoleon Katsos <nk248cam.ac.uk>
Subject: International Society for Greek Linguistics
At the Business Meeting at the recent 7th International Conference on Greek
Linguistics in York, the idea of forming an International Society for Greek
Linguistics (Diethnis Eteria Elinikis Glosolojias) was raised and it met
with a very positive reception.
The following Mission Statement for the Society has been enunciated:
The International Society for Greek Linguistics has as its goal the
promotion of the scientific study of the Greek language, covering all eras
in its historical development, and covering all areas of linguistic
investigation. Toward the achievement of this goal, the Society will work
to arrange and sponsor future instantiations of the now biennial
international conferences (like the recent one at York), to publish the
conference proceedings, to support a journal, to offer support for
scholarly endeavors pertaining to Greek linguistics, and to serve as an
informational resource for members and interested parties through the
hosting and maintenance of a website.
Scholars, researchers, teachers, students, and anyone with an interest in
Greek linguistics are invited to join the Society.
Please send a statement that you would like to receive information about
DEtEG, and would be interested in becoming a member, accompanied by an
e-mail address and/or a postal address where you can be reached in the
months to come. This statement should be sent to George Tsoulas via e-mail
to gt3york.ac.uk, or via post to
Department of Language and Linguistic Science,
University of York,
Heslington, York YO10 5DD
We would like to hear from all interested parties by December 31, 2005 so
that the Society and the organizing committee can be formed during 2006.
Please feel free to distribute this information to anyone you feel might be
