The Linguistic Association of Finland is organizing a symposium on
to be held at the University of Helsinki, August 17-19, 2000.
The symposium will bring together linguists interested in problems relating to parts of speech. We invite papers addressing general typological questions as well as papers taking the viewpoint of one (or more) particular language(s). Possible themes include the universality of the noun/verb distinction, (the grammaticalization of) adpositions, and the status of particles and interjections in grammar and discourse. Other topics relating to parts of speech are equally welcome.
The deadline for submission of abstracts (in English; max 500 words) is May 15, 2000. Please submit your abstract by e-mail to the following address <firstname.lastname@example.org>. The abstract should be included in the body of the message.
E-mail submissions are strongly recommended. If, however, you send your abstract by ordinary mail, please provide an e-mail address as a contact address. Participants will be notified about acceptance by June 5, 2000.
The deadline for registration and payment for ALL participants is June 21, 2000. Register by e-mail to the address above.
The organizers will provide a list of hotels later.
