CRiLLS Launch, April 30 2008
We are writing to you to invite you to the launch of the new Centre for
Research in Linguistics and Language Sciences (CRiLLS), at Newcastle
University, which will be officially launched on April 30. We would be
delighted if you were able to attend. The launch of CRiLLS marks an
important milestone in the development and expansion of linguistics and
language sciences at Newcastle University, bringing together more than 40
academic staff across the University, one of the largest teams of linguists
in Europe. Our strengths lie in both our breadth of expertise, ranging from
the highly theoretical to the very applied, and our range of
interdisciplinary research activities, bridging theory and application. We
expect this event to be a huge success, with plenary addresses given by
three distinguished linguists: Bernard Comrie, David Crystal and Lesley
Milroy. In addition, you will have an opportunity to meet with members of
CRiLLS and discuss our exciting projects and plans for the future. At the
end of the afternoon, there will be a drinks reception and optional dinner.
If you would like to attend the launch please complete the registration
form on our website,
http://www.ncl.ac.uk/linguistics/news/events/item/crills-launch, before the
8 April 2008 to reserve your place. We look forward to welcoming you to
this important event and sincerely hope that you are able to attend.
With best wishes,
