About SSoL

The aim of the SSoL

The aim of the Summer School of Linguistics is to give an opportunity to students and young researchers who are interested in language and its use to get acquainted with the range of current achievements in linguistic research. The lectures usually cover various research fields such as the first and second language acquisition, psycholinguistics, typology and language contact, corpus linguistics, neurolinguistics, phonetics, etc.

The Summer School of Linguistics aims also to have an important social impact. In other words, it should be not only a place where one can get useful information of the current state of linguistics but also a place where people interested in language and its use meet, discuss various issues and possibly start to collaborate on various future projects.

Anybody interested in language and its use is welcome at the Summer School of Linguistics. There is no need for prior knowledge of any of the topics. The capacity of the school is limited (ca. 100 participants).

Lectures & workshops

Lectures are 70 minutes long (approximately 60 minutes talk and 10 minutes discussion). There are 5 lecture slots each day. Also, during the whole week two parallel workshops on different topics take place.

Poster session

During the school, poster session is organized to provide the participants a possibility to present their own research and their planned projects. Possible topics of the posters reflect the thematic orientation of the Summer School, i.e. language research employing empirical methods (experimental or fieldwork methods, quantitative methods for corpus data analyses or other methods of data collection and analysis). Posters can present information either about finished research projects, or about ongoing studies or even planned projects. Our main aim is to give the participants a possibility to discuss their work, to exchange experiences with various issues or to consult anything they would like. There is no need to present final results of your work.
