Deadline for early registration: 22 February 2008.

We are happy to announce an international conference on Continuity and Change in Grammar, which will take place from 18-20 March 2008 at the University of Cambridge.

The aim of the conference is to bring together researchers working on different aspects of linguistic transmission in order to enhance our understanding of what makes languages change and what in turn prevents them from changing. A particular focus of the conference will be the development of the expression of negation in different languages.

Invited speakers:

Richard Ingham (Birmingham City)
Martin Maiden (Oxford)
John Sundquist (Purdue)
Sarah Thomason (Michigan)

Unfortunately, the plenary address by Jan Terje Faarlund (Oslo) has had to be cancelled.
