Meeting Description: 

This is the first international workshop on empirical methods for the study
of mental grammar to be held in Taiwan. 

Linguists study language in order to understand the nature of mental
grammar. Yet linguistic data also reflect many influences other than
grammar, including processing constraints and historical accidents. How can
we distinguish grammar from other factors like these? Is it even possible
to do so?

This Workshop gathers scholars from Taiwan and abroad to exchange ideas
about these challenges and to teach strategies for dealing with them.
Invited speakers include Wayne Cowart, Mike Hammond, Mary Beckman, Thomas
Lee, and Samuel Wang.

The first day of the Workshop (Friday, April 13, 2007) consists of
tutorials on testing grammatical hypotheses using empirical linguistic
data. Attendees may choose to register for the tutorials and/or the
Workshop presentations separately.

The language of the conference is English, but many examples will come from
Chinese and other languages.
