Dear ALT members,

At the conference in Berkeley, ALT will present two awards, the Joseph 
Greenberg award for a typological dissertation defended in 2007 or 2008, 
and the Georg von der Gabelentz award for a grammar published between 
2005 and 2008.

The juries of the two awards have now made their decisions. The two 
award winners are:

Caterina Mauri of the University of Pavia, who will receive the Joseph 
Greenberg award for her dissertation "Coordination relations in the 
languages of Europe and beyond", defended at the University of Pavia in 

Carol Genetti of the University of California at Santa Barbara, who will 
receive the Georg von der Gabelentz award for her "Grammar of Dolakha 
Newar", published by Mouton de Gruyter in 2007.

Both award winners will present a plenary lecture at the conference in 

We are very grateful to Martin Haspelmath and Nikolaus Himmelmann, who 
chaired the Greenberg and Gabelentz juries, and to the members of the 
juries, for all the work they put into reading and evaluating the 
entries. Jury reports will follow in the next issue of ALT News.

With best wishes,

Anna Siewierska (president)
J-C Verstraete (secretary-treasurer)
