One day before the start of the annual conference of the German Linguistic Society (DGfS), the society’s Lehramtsinitiative organized its traditional information day for teachers. This year’s topic was Welche Grammatik braucht die Schule? (What kind of grammar is needed for school?). The event included a 2-hour working group on conlanging under the title Kreative Grammatikreflexion: Sprachen erfinden im Grammatikunterricht. This working group was organized by Alexandra Zepter (Cologne), Judith Bündgens-Kosten (Frankfurt) and Manfred Sailer (Frankfurt).
Over the last year, the projects NRR (Non-restrictive Relative Clauses) and CON (Constraint-based Analysis of relative clauses) worked together on non-restrictive relative clauses with split antecedents. The results of this cooperation were presented as a poster at this year’s Sinn und Bedeutung, Berlin/Potsdam, 7.-10.9.2017. The poster was presented by Claudia Poschmann and Continue reading Poster at “Sinn und Bedeutung”, Berlin/Potsdam, 7.-10.9.2017
