Subject: EGG Summer School: Olomouc 06
13th EGG Summer School
Olomouc/ Czech Republic
24 July - 4 August
more info at http://egg.auf.net
Registration: 10-20 April
The Eastern Generative Grammar summerschool, sometimes known as the GLEE,
will be held in the historic town of Olomouc (Moravia) in 2006. The egg
focuses on generative grammar. Teachers are both senior established figures
in the field and young promising researchers at the forefront of today's
research (they are all coming to teach for free (and for fun)).
Olomouc 06 will be a thematic EGG on the interface of phonology with
morphology and syntax. The goal is to have syntacticians and phonologists
talk to each other (something that is not obvious at all these days) about
the strange no-man's land that lies between them: where is morphology
standing? what exactly is PF doing? what can it do? what is it unable to
do? How exactly does it do it? And many more questions of that kind. All in
all, our focus is the general architecture of the grammar.
Registration (online) will only be open from April 10th to April 20th, see

The LINGUIST List is under the umbrella of Eastern Michigan University and as such can
receive donations through the EMU Foundation, which is a registered 501(c) Non Profit
organization. Our Federal Tax number is 38-6005986. These donations can be offset against
your federal and sometimes your state tax return (U.S. tax payers only). For more
information visit the IRS Web-Site, or contact your financial advisor.
Many companies also offer a gift matching program, such that they will match any gift
you make to a non-profit organization. Normally this entails your contacting your human
resources department and sending us a form that the EMU Foundation fills in and returns
to your employer. This is generally a simple administrative procedure that doubles the
value of your gift to LINGUIST, without costing you an extra penny. Please take a moment
to check if your company operates such a program.
Thank you very much for your support of LINGUIST!
