Subject: new journal in Geneva

 The Linguistic Departement in Geneva is happy
 to announce the new member of the staff :

 GenGenP, i.e. the Geneva Generative Papers, is a new
 publication of the department, focussed on research in
 generative grammar and its borderfields. It will appear twice a
 year : one in the summer, one in winter.

 The first issue has already appeared and contains new papers by :

 Anna Cardinaletti - SpecCP in V2 languages
 Luigi Rizzi - Direct Perception, Government and Thematic Sharing
 Ur Shlonsky - The Representation of Agreement in Comp
 Liliane Haegeman - Sentential Negation in Italian and the Neg-Criterion
 Maria Teresa Guasti - Pseudorelatives and Prepositional Infinitives
 Piero Bottari - Romance Passive Nominals

 This winter's issue will be in major part dedicated to language
 acquisition and is due for Christmas.

 We would be glad to organise as many exchanges as possible, ... but
 we can also sell GenGenP for normal money : the price per
 volume (2 issues) is 20.-SwissFrancs in Europe (roughly 16 dollars) and
 30.- SwissFrancs, elsewhere (roughly 24 dollars).
 *** Payment by MasterCard only *** (in Europe = EuroCard) ***

 For complementary information, subscription, etc. please

 Thank you,
 Michal Starke.
