The forum consists of four sessions, each addressing a distinct issue
within information-based approaches to linguistics, i.e. within the
research tradition that considers objects that make up human languages
as bearers of information. In these sessions, through short
presentations by the participants and extended discussion of these
presentations, we will explore the properties of various
information-based phonological, syntactic, and semantic frameworks and
their relationships to one another.

SESSIONS:

 Linguistic Features
 Linguistic Categories
 Linguistic Constituents
 Rule Operation in an Information-based Framework
