Comparative Syntax Research Area

The "syntax research area" is a group of staff and students carrying our syntax-related research in Cambridge. Members of the cluster organise and participate in a wide range of events, including:

  • reading groups;
  • talks;
  • short courses and lecture series;
  • student-run workshops involving both local PhD students and invited speakers from outside the Linguistics Department; and
  • local and international conferences.

This website includes a list of cluster members, details of the various syntax-related events taking place in Cambridge and information on members' projects and reseach.
