Bridges and Interfaces

Special to Lecture Series Twelve is that, in conjunction, a conference Bridges and Interfaces: Form, Meaning, and Function is organized, on the occasion of the 650th anniversary of Charles University. The conference takes place in the Charles University historical building, in the old centre of Prague, and consists of a track of invited lectures, and technical sessions of submitted papers.

The conference is held on March 12 until 14, 1998, and it focuses on the relationships between form, meaning and function of linguistic items from the perspective of different theoretical approaches providing thus a fruitful basis for a discussion of bridges and interfaces between different linguistic theories.
