THE 2017 SLE SUMMER SCHOOL:
The Societas Linguistica Europaea invites applications from current PhD students

The summer school is competitive, with a total of 30 places. Tuition, accommodation

COORDINATION WITH SLE-50 IN ZURICH
The summer school will end on the afternoon of September 9, so that participants who plan to
attend the SLE conference in Zurich (Sep 10-13) can seamlessly combine the two events: Zurich
is a 90-minute train ride away from Neuchâtel.
