SLE 2017

 

From 10-14.09, Berit and Katie participated in the 50th Annual Meeting of the Societas Linguistica Europaea in Zurich, Switzerland. Berit and Olga Borik organised a workshop, entitled “Participles: Form, Use and Meaning (PartFUM)“, and Katie presented a talk entitled “Extra arguments: a Multi-dimensional perspective”. The workshop was a nice mix of talks on participles and Katie’s talk in the general session went well. Being such a big conference, with many sub-disciplines of linguistics, there were many new colleagues to meet. Even with the large number of lingusits, the organisation was very good (there was an SLE app!), as was the conference dinner– complete with a linguist band and dancing linguists. Next year’s SLE will take place in Tallinn, Estonia.
