7 Who are we? Uniting characteristics - Theory is not a goal in itself, but a tool that serves the primary interest of the group members, which is to describe and classify linguistic facts based on empirical research - Frameworks applied - Language-specificity Relevance - No knowledge (including theory) without data - Lesser susceptibility to obsolescence - Broadness ccc Examples:

8 Achievements academic publications - 7 monographs - 6 Ph.D. theses - 18 editorial activities - 72 professional publications (interest of a wider audience) - 2 internal and 1.5 external Ph.D. projects initiated - Finno-Ugristics conference other conferences (in collaboration with other groups), e.g. Languages in Contact 2000

9 Goals - continuation of output  more Ph.D. students and postdocs (future generation)

10 Opportunities, threats Threats - few possibilities for Ph.D. projects - situation within the FdL, connection with teaching priorities Opportunities  collaboration with LOT, CNWS
