141 Gilbert Hall

The first meeting of UGA's syntax reading group (Syn-R-G) will be Thursday afternoon at 3:30 pm. The reading group is for those interested in reading and discussing articles which make use of modern syntactic theory (primarily minimalist theory). At this first meeting we will choose a day and time for meeting which will be good for all interested parties, as well as an article to be read for the next meeting, and discuss topics for future articles. If you are unable to attend this first meeting, please email me at to let me know, and provide me with the times/days when you would be able to attend, and I will try to work that into Syn-R-G's meeting time. I hope to see many of you soon!
