Subject: Generative Linguistics

 
 On-line Conference
 "The 40-th Anniversary of Generativism"
 1-12.12.1997

 Since Chomsky's "Syntactic Structures", published in 1957, the
generative view in linguistics has become widely popular. Thus, this
year is the 40-th anniversary of the publication. In past forty years
the generative linguistics has passed several stages of development
and currently it can be considered a broad and dynamically growing
theory, having multiply links both within the linguistics and with
other sciences.
 We see the goal of the conference as helding an overall discussion
on generative linguistics.
 The work of the conference should be organized in 4 sections:
 Section 1. History & methodology.
 Section 2. Current investigations in generative linguistics in
all of it's variants (GB-theory, minimalistic program, etc.).
 Section 3. Development perspectives, unsolved problems.
 Section 4. Interconnections with other sciences: biolinguistics,
psyholinguistics, neurolinguistics, cognitive, computational,
mathematical linguistics.
 The conference organized by the electronic journal "Web Journal
of Formal, Computational & Cognitive Linguistics"
(http://www.ksu.ru/kazan/science/fccl/index.html).
