The Leipzig linguistics community invites advanced students (Ph.D. or M.A. level) in linguistics and related fields to attend this ten-day event in March/April 2008. It is co-organized by linguists at the University of Leipzig and at the Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Anthropology

The Spring School offers courses in different areas of linguistics, which look at language from the point of view of linguistic diversity (comparative syntax, areal typology, comparative phonology, language contact, typological psycholinguistics). The courses will be taught by linguists from the various Leipzig-based institutions and visiting scientists currently working in Leipzig. The participation fee is only EUR 35.

All participants are also invited to attend the workshop on Scales hosted by the Research Group on Grammar and Processing of Verbal Arguments on the weekend between courses.
