Formal Description of Slavic Languages

The Fifth Conference, Leipzig 2003


Gerhild Zybatow, Luka Szucsich, Uwe Junghanns and Roland Meyer

The conferences «Formal Description of Slavic Languages» stand for the application of recent formal models in linguistics – such as Minimalism, Optimality theory, HPSG, formal semantics – to Slavic languages in order to arrive at explicit descriptions that consider all linguistic levels and interfaces. The authors of this volume investigate issues in computational linguistics, phonetics and phonology, psycholinguistics, semantics, syntax, and morphology. The analyses published address the following Slavic languages: Bosnian, Bulgarian, Czech, Macedonian, Polish, Russian, Serbian, Serbo-Croatian, Slovenian, and Upper-Sorbian.
