Message 2: L1 & L2 Acquisition

Subject: L1 & L2 Acquisition


*** REMINDER *** REMINDER ***

*** WORKSHOP ON THE L1- AND L2-ACQUISITION OF CLAUSE-
INTERNAL RULES: SCRAMBLING AND CLITICIZATION ***

*** UNIVERSITY OF BERNE - JANUARY 21-23, 1994 ***

Natural languages display a wide range of clause-internal
reordering phenomena. Although central for the grammar of
many languages, these phenomena have been rather marginally
treated in the acquisition literature. The main purpose of
the meeting in Berne is to bring together researchers working
in this field in order to take the first steps toward filling
this gap.

The workshop will consist of 12-16 contributions of 45 minutes
each (plus 15 minutes discussion) and 3-4 state-of-the-art
talks. The latter will cover the following topics:
(i) the structure of full and pronominal DPs;
(ii) current trends in the theory of scrambling and cliticization.

** The organizing committee: Z. Penner (Berne), T. Roeper
 (UMass), J. Weissenborn (MPI), K. Wexler (MIT) **

Those interested in actively participating in the workshop
should send four copies of a one-page abstract to the
following address *BEFORE SEPTEMBER 10, 1993*.
