                          7th Central European
                  Summer School in Generative Grammar

                          Blagoevgrad - Bulgaria
                         31 July - 11 August 2000

This is the summer school previously held in Olomouc-Debrecen-Plovdiv. As 
always it is entirely free, with very inexpensive lodging, it has very high level
teachers discussing the results of the latest research, offers two weeks of intensive 
intellectual work, and is hosted in a small and charming city. This year we have 
a particularly enticing roster of teachers:

David Pesetsky (MIT), Orin Percus (Milano), Michal Starke (Geneva), Irina Sekerina (Rutgers), 
Stephen Neale (Rutgers), Peter Ludlow (Suny), Winfried Lechner (Tubingen), 
Jeffrey King (UCDavis), Katarina Hartman (UFrankfurt), Gienek Cyran (Lublin), 
Michael Brody (UCL/Budapest), Daniel Buring (UCSantaCruz), Cedric Boeckx (UConn), 
Klaus Abels (UConn)

The school will be separated into two distinct tracks: 
* an intro-track, with 11 topical introductions (covering syntax, semantics, 
phonology, philosophy of language, psycholinguistics, see class listing at the end),
* an advanced-track with 12 seminars + daily intensive discussion-sessions (see 
class listing at the end)).

Up-to-date info, forms for applications, news, etc. will always be at:

Here are some keypoints:

-> Blagoevgrad is a small and charming university-town in Bulgaria, easily reachable,
just 1h south of Sofia.

-> There is a sizeable amount of grants available to cover travel and hotel charges
of people from Central/Eastern Europe.

-> Hotel costs is low: 3,60$/night.

-> the registration deadline is: 15 May 2000, with the registration form at:

-> the school has a tradition of great fun on top of intensive intellectual life. And
we intend to maintain that this year ;-)
