self-descriptionMy main interests are in syntax, morphosyntax and the interface to semantics -- In syntax mostly Agree, binding and the encoding of arguments. I'm finishing my bachelor's at the moment so my linguistic experience is mostly drawn from undergraduate courses, but also colloquia, conferences etc. I'm mainly into generative linguistics because it's the story that convinces me the most (and well, I guess one is biased to whatever one started with). It just fascinates me that things like c-command, constituency, binding, and all the rest of all that underlying abstract structure is out there in language. Also the Chomskyan idea to view the human language faculty as a biological organ, just as the liver e.g., intrigues me, because it give a deep biological, psychological and philosophical scope to linguistic inquiery. So I really hope to learn lots more at the egg surrounded by interested and interesting people.
