Meeting Description:

''Minimalist'' linguistic theories have matured to the point where they can be formalized and used as the basis for natural language parsers. This 2-day workshop is dedicated solely to the topic of parsing within the ''minimalist'' framework. It will focus on implemented, working minimalist parsers and how the practice of parsing interacts with theoretical linguistic considerations.

The workshop is open to all, but participants must first register at the workshop website:

The workshop is also free to members of MIT and Harvard. Other registrants will be asked to make a modest donation; please see the registration page for details.

Speakers include:

Robert C. Berwick, Sandiway Fong, Meaghan Fowlie, Jason Ginsburg, Thomas Graf, John Hale, Tim Hunter, Greg Kobele, Ed Stabler, and Kristine Yu.
