Formal Approaches to Japanese Linguistics 6 (FAJL 6)

The FAJL (Formal Approaches to Japanese Linguistics) conferences provide since 1994 the primary venue for cutting edge, theoretical work in all domains of Japanese linguistics. The sixth edition is going to be first time FAJL takes place in Europe organized by the ZAS (Centre for General Linguistics) in Berlin. The ZAS is a university-independent research centre and its objective is the investigation of natural language and its manifestation in individual languages.

The FAJL6 conference features, in addition to the general sessions, four thematic sessions on the following topics: ellipsis licensing, prosody, syntactic processing, and the semantics of phrase final particles. These sessions are financially supported by the German Research Foundation DFG as well as from the BMBF (German Federal Ministry of Research) via the organizing institution ZAS (Grant Nr. 01UG0711).
