EGG 2018 will go to the wonderful city of Banja Luka (Republika Srpska, Bosnia and Herzegovina). As always it will sit on the break of July and August (but there is not much left of July): classes take place from Monday July 30th to Friday August 10th.
More to come, stay tuned…
[this year the EGG is financially supported (2500 Euros) by Université Côte d’Azur (UCA), with no influence on teacher selection, curricula or other matters of the school]
The handout of my 2nd week class is now available on the class page. If you plan to attend, it will be useful to read a little ahead for each day (the handout is divided into days). I will try to do some paper copies at least for day one.
Here is the team of local organizers: Rusudan Asatiani, Marine Ivanishvili, Anna Kolkhidashvili, Ivane Lejava (all Ivane Javakhishvili Tbilisi State University), Gia Lobjanidze, Nino Bezarashvili, Valeri Oriashvili (from Lagodekhi).
Thanks for all you have already done and will be doing during the school.
Here is some relevant information regarding onsite facilities:
- there will be free Internet (Wifi) in the hotel and classrooms
- there will be cheap xerox available (0,02E / page)
- free tea & coffee all day long
- football and basketball fields available, also a pool table
- there is a river right next to the hotel that is big enough for swimming
Next thing to come up is the timetable – keep tuned.
The last bit of travel indication is now available on the FAQ page: how to get from the (mini-)bus station to the (football) hotel in Lagodekhi.
The last phonology abstract is now online on the classes page.
Just uploaded my own course abstract (also available from classes page).
The FAQ is now online, providing practical information: visa, travel, accommodation.
[there is only one piece missing, the description of the way from the arrival of the mini-buses in Lagodekhi to the hotel. To be completed soon…]
Unfortunately, Marc van Oostendorp won’t be able to make it to Lagedekhi. I have thus removed the classes he announced.
Sorry about that.
Most courses in phonology this year address a specific topic:
The arbitrariness of the relationship between phonology and phonetics
Here is a short description.
