of Linguistics at the University of Potsdam and Humboldt University Berlin in
Germany. There will be 10 invited talks and the SFB632 will also present itself

conference, please register on our webpage before 15th May, 2006. 

Information structure is intrinsically multi-modular and can only be
successfully addressed when several aspects of grammar are considered at once.
On the theoretical side, semantic models need input from phonology and syntax;
similarly, both phonology and syntax show the most interesting results when
supported by other grammatical components. On the empirical side, we are now
going through an area of experimental investigation which promises to be highly
profitable for the research on information structure, shedding light in
particular on the aspects of typology, psycholinguistics and language acquisition.

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!
