30th Poznan Linguistic Meeting (PLM)

ANNOUNCEMENT
AND CALL FOR PAPERS


This is to announce a linguistic meeting intended to take up,
cherish and continue the long-established tradition of
International Conferences on Contrastive Linguistics organized by
Professor Jacek Fisiak. Prof. Fisiak has so far organized 29

honorary Chairman of the organizing committee of the 30th

Topic

The topic of the Meeting - Recent developments in linguistic
theory - invites papers which contribute in some way to the
contemporary models of linguistic description and explanation (be

point to an ultimate application of those models to linguistic
typology.
