IAP 2006 Activity

Pre-Modern and Early Modern Linguistic Thought
Grammatical Elders Group
No enrollment limit, no advance sign up
Participants welcome at individual sessions (series)

The idea of this mini-course is to get some exposure to some important chapters in the history of linguistic thought, with the help of faculty and students with relevant interests. Comprehensiveness is out of the question. This is more of a "highlight reel" of linguistic history, hopefully good and useful highlights that might serve as an access point for further study.

The general format each day will be a 45-minute presentation and up to 45 minutes for discussion. Suggested readings for each meeting will be announced in advance via the mailing list.
