Research Networking Programme NETWORDS - Summer School announcement

the 2nd Interdisciplinary Summer School on Words: structure, meaning, acquisition, processing will take place in TRONDHEIM (NORWAY), 4th-9th August 2014.

The school, jointly organised and sponsored by NetWordS and the Norwegian Graduate Researcher School in Linguistics and Philology (, will bring together, for a full week, PhD students and post-doctoral researchers from all over Europe and beyond, to attend courses on interdisciplinary approaches to the study of word structure and usage, focusing on either thematic or methodological issues. The school intends to target two levels of studentship, ranging from less experienced to more experienced attendants, according to the following rationale:

Thematic courses:

‘non-specialist’ courses are geared towards PhD students and postdocs that do not specialize in the particular areas dealt with by the courses but would like to seize the opportunity to broaden their horizon beyond their respective specializations;

‘specialist courses’ are more geared towards PhD students and postdocs that have already some first-hand experience in the areas covered by the courses and are interested in discussing related advanced research issues.

Methodological courses:

‘basic’ courses are geared towards people with very little experience in the methods dealt with by the courses;

‘advanced’ courses are geared towards people with previous experience in the domains addressed by the courses and are seeking expert tutoring on more complex problems arising in connection with the specific methods under discussion.
