Meeting Description:

The seminar series 'Current Issues in Formal Linguistics', conducted by
internationally outstanding researchers, intends to present recent research in
four key areas of theoretical linguistics: syntax, semantics, morphology and
interfaces with the lexicon and the 'performance'. The seminars are divided in
four modules:

I. Current Trends in Syntactic Theory (by Cedric Boeckx)
II. Topics in the Semantics of Modification (by Louise McNally)
III. Distributed Morphology: Selected Topics on Mixed Category Formation (by
Artemis Alexiadou)
IV. Syntax and Prosody (by Maria Luisa Zubizarreta)

The Seminars are aimed at graduate students and young researchers, as well as
professors and advanced researchers, who will be able to extend or upgrade their
knowledge in the specific subjects that will be addressed. Participants will
have the opportunity to maintain brief meetings with the guest lecturers if
requested in advance.

'Current Issues in Formal Linguistics' is organized by the research group
Linguistics and Cognitive Science of the Center for Humanities and Social
Sciences (Consejo Superior de Investigaciones Científicas, Spain) and is
included the program of the Department of Postgraduate Studies and
