October 20 to 30 Manfred Sailer spent in Athens on a Short Term Scientific Mission of the network PARSEME (Parsing and Multiword Expressions). Most of the time Manfred was working with Stella Merkantonatou (Institute for Language and Speech Processing, Athens) on the planned edited volume on Multiword Expressions: Insights from a Multi-lingual Perspective.
October 26, Manfred gave a talk on The flexibility of idioms and language-specific constraints on syntactic operations. The talk contained material from joint work with Sascha Bargmann on the syntactic flexibility of non-decomposable idioms and Manfred’s work on idioms with possession.
