self-description As a postgraduate student studying Serbian (and English) language, I have realized that what I am most interested in is linguistics. There are a great number of courses at the faculty that I really enjoy. Some of them are Morphology, Syntax (i.e. Morphosyntax), Pragmatics and others that I attend. There are not many of us that study linguistics and we often say how it would be nice if there were many others that we could talk to and share our ideas and opinions. However, I admit that my linguistic experience in generative grammar is not as I would like it to be - actually, we havenīt dealt with generative issues at all(and since I believe it is important for someone who studies and teaches linguistics to know at least something from Generativism, I apply for your Summer School - I believe that my work would be greatly aided by the sort of understanding that I could gain through the EGG). Furthermore, I am eager to come because is also an opportunity to socialize with people who have the same interests as me. I want to hear the opinions of the people from other countries and see in what way does our background influence our linguistic knowledge, ability and beliefs.
