Selected presentations

We wish to thank all those who made proposals for the 30th Colloquium on Generative Grammar. The number and level of abstracts was exceptionally high and we have only been able to select around 25% of them. We believe that the 30th CGG is going to be a particularly exciting occasion for discussing the latest outcomes of generative linguistics, so we hope to welcome you soon in Oviedo. We will keep you informed about any news regarding the new schedule.
