    Dear colleagues,

    Many linguists that work on less widely known languages make use of interlinear morpheme-by-morpheme glosses, for which fairly standard conventions now exist. However, these conventions have hardly been been codified so far.

    The Leipzig Glossing Rules represent an attempt at codification of the current conventions in the field. They can be found under http://www.eva.mpg.de/lingua/files/morpheme.html.

    The Leipzig Glossing Rules have been developed jointly by the Department of Linguistics of the Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Anthropology (Bernard Comrie, Martin Haspelmath) and by the Department of Linguistics of the University of Leipzig (Balthasar Bickel). They consist of ten rules for the "syntax" and "semantics" of interlinear glosses, and an appendix with a proposed "lexicon" of abbreviated category labels.

    The Rules cover a large part of linguists' needs in glossing texts, but many authors will feel the need to add (or modify) certain conventions (especially category labels). Still, it will be useful to have a standard set of conventions that linguists can refer to, and the Leipzig Rules are proposed as such to the community of linguists. We expect, for instance, that teachers may find them useful if asked by students, and journal editors may recommend adherence to these Rules to their authors.

    The Rules are intended to reflect common usage, and only very few (mostly optional) innovations are proposed. We intend to update the Leipzig Glossing Rules occasionally, so feedback is very welcome.

    ========================================== EALing I 2003 - Fall School in Linguistics ==========================================

    The Department of Cognitive Studies at the Ecole Normale Sup�rieure (ENS) in Paris organizes its first international Fall School in Linguistics (on the summer school model).

    The goal of this interdisciplinary Fall school is to provide a broad exposure to linguistic theory and grammar based approaches to cognitive studies. The lectures will include: * General non technical introductions to contemporary linguistic research * Intensive introductory courses to some core areas of linguistic theory * Seminars and talks on current research * Exchanges between research in grammar and some related domains Neurolinguistics, Computational Linguistics, Psycholinguistics, Neuroimagery

    This Fall school will be held at the Ecole Normale Superieure (45 rue d Ulm, 75005 Paris: see http://www.ens.fr, from Tuesday, September the 23rd to Thursday October the 2nd.
