Date: Thu, 5 Jun 1997 14:31:45 +0200
From: Gisbert Fanselow <fanselowrz.uni-potsdam.de>
Subject: Mini workshop on split constituents

The syntax project of the Innovationskolleg "Formal Models
of Cognitive Complexity" wants to organize a mini-workshop
on split constituents such as (1) or (2) some time in
fall 1997.

(1) interessante Buecher hat sie keine teuren gelesen
 interesting books has she no expensive read
 "she didn't read any expensive interesting books"
 [German]
(2) na kakav je Ivan krov bacio loptu
 on what-kind-of was Ivan roof threw ball
 "on what kind of roof did he throw a ball"
 [Croatian]

If you are working on this kind of construction (
the language does not matter)and if you would like
to come to such a mini-workshop, please let us know...
