This conference is the first in the series "Theoretical and Experimental Linguistics" and aims at bringing together theoretical work in contemporary syntactic theory with work on the syntactic properties displayed by the various types of language disorders. It will center around four core concepts of Generative Linguistics: (i) Functional Categories (ii) Word Order and Movement (iii) Dependencies within and across Sentences and (iv) Interfaces, and will compare the behavior of normal and impaired language with respect to each of them. It seeks answers to questions such as:  What constitutes a deviation from a normal system in current syntactic terms?  How likely is it to find in normal language patterns and behavior encountered in language disorders?  What do impaired varieties of language have to contribute to contemporary syntactic theory?
