Linguistic Field(s): General Linguistics; Typology

Meeting Description:

The members of the Leipzig Valency Classes project
(http://www.eva.mpg.de/lingua/valency/index.php) are currently carrying out
a large-scale cross-linguistic comparison of valency classes. To make
progress in the cross-linguistic study of valency classes, we have
assembled a group of contributors/language experts, who are collaborating
on providing consistent sets of cross-linguistic data. To bring all of these
experts together for a meeting we are organizing a big Conference on
Valency Classes in the World's Languages. In case you're wondering
whether you've missed a call for papers: you have not. All our presenters
have been especially invited by us. We think that this conference might be
of interest to some of you and it will be open to the public, so if you wish to
attend it you are welcome to do so. The conference program can be found
on our website:

asses.php

The conference will take place at the Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary
Anthropology in Leipzig, Germany on April 15-17th 2011.

There is no registration fee in the strict sense, however, if you wish to eat
lunch with us, you will be charged a small fee for this (to be payable upon
arrival). The exact amount remains yet to be calculated, but it should be
around 15 EUR per person for the two lunches (Friday & Saturday). We are
also organizing a city walking tour on Sunday after the conference, if you
would like to join us for this you can do so (this will cost between 6 and 10
EUR per person, depending on how many people will participate.)

If you would like to attend our conference, please send an e-mail to
iren_hartmann(at)eva.mpg.de and cschmidt(at)eva.mpg.de before March
31st, providing us with the following information :

- your name
- your affiliation
- whether you would like to eat lunch with us on Friday and Saturday. (Yes /
No)
- whether you would like to join us for the city walking tour on Sunday. (Yes
/ No)

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

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.
