Meeting Description:

The Colloquium on Generative Grammar (CGG) is one of the main conferences on
this topic held in Europe. It is the best conference on linguistics organized
yearly in the Iberian Peninsula.

This Colloquium constitutes a crucial point of reference for people working
on linguistics, in particular, on generative grammar, but also on related
fields. The interest raised goes beyond its original geographical area, the
Southern Europe, and attracts researchers from different parts of the
world, e.g., from other regions of Europe, from America and Asia. The set
of the participants of the CGG includes senior linguists, recognized
specialists on different domains of grammar, as well as young linguists,
students of Post Graduation programs or researchers that have obtained
their PhD recently and start their professional career. From a scientific
point of view, the works presented at the conference cover all the
components of grammar (syntax, morphology, phonology and semantics) and pay
special attention to the most recent theoretical formulations within the
generative framework.

The XVIIIth Colloquium on Generative Grammar will be held at the Faculdade
de Letras da Universidade de Lisboa, Portugal, from 17th to 19th April, 2008.
