The SESYLIA-LILT linguistic research team at Institut du Monde Anglophone,
Paris 3 Sorbonne Nouvelle, is organizing a conference on the notion(s) of
"events" with the following goals:
- to take stock of current research on event structure and the verb from the
perspective of lexical or generative syntax, cognitive linguistics or
'énonciative' (utterer-centered) frameworks;
- to consider the event in relation to language acquisition;
- to encourage a cross-fertilization of ideas on the discursive, historical,
philosophical, poetic and literary uses of events;
- to promote dialogue and interaction between different approaches to the
notion of events.
Call for Papers
Abstracts are invited for 30-minute talks in English or French on any topic
related to the linguistic and non linguistic aspects of events; they should
contain between 300 and 400 words. They will be reviewed anonymously. The
deadline for submission is May 31st, 2010. The body of your email message
should contain your name, affiliation and contact information. Please send
abstracts to corre.parisevents.ericgmail.com.

The LINGUIST List is under the umbrella of Eastern Michigan University and as
such can receive donations through the EMU Foundation, which is a registered
501(c) Non Profit organization. Our Federal Tax number is 38-6005986. These
donations can be offset against your federal and sometimes your state tax return
(U.S. tax payers only). For more information visit the IRS Web-Site, or contact
your financial advisor.
Many companies also offer a gift matching program, such that they will match
any gift you make to a non-profit organization. Normally this entails your
contacting your human resources department and sending us a form that the
EMU Foundation fills in and returns to your employer. This is generally a simple
administrative procedure that doubles the value of your gift to LINGUIST, without
costing you an extra penny. Please take a moment to check if your company
operates such a program.
Thank you very much for your support of LINGUIST!
