Investigations into Formal Slavic Linguistics

Contributions of the Fourth European Conference on Formal Description of Slavic Languages – FDSL IV - Held at Potsdam University, November 28-30, 2001- Part 1 and 2


Peter Kosta, Joanna Blaszczak, Jens Frasek and Ljudmila Geist

Formal Slavic Linguistics is concerned with explicit description of prosody, phonology, morphology, syntax, semantics, pragmatics, information structure and language acquisition or impairments of language (aphasia) of Slavic languages within a certain theoretical framework of Principles and Parameters (Chomsky 1995 passim). But the two parts also illustrate the diversity of approaches we use in attempting to reflect the entire range of subfields within a given theoretical framework of cognitive science.
