Central European Summer School in Generative Syntax

Olomouc - Czech Republic

22 August - 2 September 1994

A generative grammar summer school which is:

. high level (teachers from leading research centres)
. intensive (2 weeks of interactive learning and research)
. cheap (no fees, low local living costs, central location)
. charming (small peaceful medieval city)
. young (teachers' average age <30)

The summer school offers an intensive introduction to generative
linguistics. It will be centered around syntax and offers: results
of the latest research, current issues and open problems, basic
philosophy, methodology.

The program will be divided into two parts, week 1: overviews of
