Linguistic Field(s): Syntax
SyntaxFest 2010 is a 4-day workshop of the Indiana University Linguistics
Department on issues related to syntactic theory construction, featuring
mini-courses by some of the foremost researchers working within the Minimalist
Program. It will take place from 15-18 June 2010 in Bloomington, Indiana.
Students and faculty working in Syntax will not want to miss this opportunity to
discuss the latest developments in Minimalism with the architects of the
program! Registration is available online, or by postal correspondence with the
Indiana University Linguistics Department. Those wishing to attend are
encouraged to register before April 10 to take advantage of reduced rates.
Courses begin at 9:30 with a series of lectures by Norbert Hornstein (University
of Maryland) titled ''Outlines of a Minimalist Syntax.'' These are followed at
11 by Howard Lasnik (University of Maryland) speaking on ''EPP, Repair by
Elipsis and the Organization of the Grammar.'' In the afternoon, ?eljko
Bo?kovi? (University of Connecticut) speaks on ''Issues in Locality, Agreement
and the Structure of the NP'' at 1:45, Norvin Richards (MIT) on ''Prosody and
Syntax'' at 3:15, and Jason Merchant (University of Chicago) on ''Linguistic
Interfaces and the Architecture of the Grammar'' at 4:45.

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!
