“Perpaus” Peripatetic Seminar on Language, Computation and Cognition Séminaire Itinérant Langue, Computation, Cognition Prof. John Anderson Emeritus Professor of English Language, University of Edinburgh Fellow of the British Academy Doctor Honoris Causa of the University of Toulouse-Le Mirail “Perpaus” is a peripatetic/itinerant seminar on language (and, in particular, on its semantic aspects) studied from a pluridisciplinary perspective, through its structures, its logico-formal and computational properties as well as in the light of the cognitive processes it gives rise to. Organized by several research groups from the Pyrenean region (Toulouse, Bordeaux, Bayonne, Donostia-San Sebastián), the “Perpaus” consortium welcomes, for each of its cycles, a renowned researcher who presents, in the various centres, the main results of her/his research as well as her/his analyses and reflections about the chosen linguistic themes. The Perpaus-04 invited speaker is John Anderson, Emeritus Professor of the University of Edinburgh, Fellow of the British Academy and Doctor Honoris Causa of the University of Toulouse-Le Mirail. Author of ten important books and more than a hundred papers or chapters in prestigious international journals or book series, John Anderson is world-famous for his contribution to the elaboration of case grammar and for his work on the localist hypothesis. His research has covered the various fields of the linguistic domain (phonology, morphology, syntax, semantics) and has been guided by the idea that all levels of linguistic representation have essentially the same structure. More generally, John Anderson considers the language faculty as being grounded in more general cognitive abilities which underlie perception and action. John Anderson’s lectures will take place at Toulouse, Bordeaux and Donostia-San Sebastián. 15 & 16 06 2004 Toulouse, Université de Toulouse-Le Mirail 14:00 (Maison de la Recherche, room/salle D31) Modern grammars of case 21 06 2004 Bordeaux, Université de Bordeaux 3 14:30 (lecture theatre/amphithéâtre 3) The legacy of case grammar 23 06 2004 Donostia/San Sebastián, ILCLI 10:00 (Villa Asunción, 275 avenue Jose Elosegi etorbidea) Grammar and meaning: Two cheers for structuralism Organizers: - Equipe de Recherche en Syntaxe et Sémantique (ERSS-UMR 5610, CNRS, Univ. de Toulouse-Le Mirail & Univ. de Bordeaux 3)) - Centre de Recherche sur la Langue et les Textes Basques (IKER-UMR 5478, CNRS, Univ. de Bordeaux 3 & Univ. de Pau et des Pays de l’Adour) - Institut de Recherche en Informatique de Toulouse (IRIT-UMR 5505, CNRS, Univ.
