Meeting Description:

The Graduiertenkolleg took off at the beginning of the decade with the
conference 'In the Mood', which brought together experts from all over the world
who paved the way for the work on sentence types to be carried out by our
students and faculty. (Roughly) Ten years after, we are in the mood for more.
We are looking forward to exchanging views on the topics that constitute the
raîson d' être of the GK, to discussing the newest approaches to the questions
that motivated its creation, to evaluating how much we have learned about
sentence types in ten years, and - at the end of the day - to celebrating the
reunion of the crucial people who have seriously contributed to the liveliness
and potential of the GK. We are hence extremely pleased to announce the
conference 'Sentence types: Ten Years After', which will be held at the Johann
Wolfgang Goethe-Universität Frankfurt am Main.
