Subject: Workshop on Interfaces & the Chinese Language


 30 June - 4 August 1993

 The Workshop on Interfaces and the Chinese Language is held in
 conjunction with the 1993 LSA Linguistic Institute, hosted by
 the Ohio State University, Columbus, Ohio. The Chinese linguistic
 workshop consists of a series of weekly lectures focusing on three
 main areas: (1) interface between cognition and grammar,
 (2) interfaces between different components of grammar, and
 (3) language contact and language change. Internationally-renowned
 scholars, sponsored by the Chiang Ching-kuo Foundation, have been
 invited to present lectures. In addition, participants of the
 Linguistic Institute have also been invited to present talks.
 These are all scheduled for Wednesdays, 10:00-12:00 noon, or
 2:00-4:00 pm, with the exception of one Friday evening lecture
 on July 2.
