Welcome to the homepage of the CreteLing Summer School 2017!

We are excited to be able to present this opportunity for a linguistic experience on a Mediterranean island. The school will take place in the town of Rethymnon, from July 10 to July 21, 2017. There will be introductory courses and more advanced seminars on phonology, sign language, morphology, syntax, semantics, animal communication, and language and society.

Important notice

As of April 10, we have stopped accepting applications for CreteLing 2017. We are a small school with a limited number of places. We apologize for any inconvenience.

If you applied before April 10, you should have heard from us by now. If you have not, please contact creteling@gmail.com as soon as possible.

If your letter does not mention a fellowship, it means that you were not assigned one on this round. However, more fellowships in the form of waivers of the dorm fee may become available after May 20.

If you are a student and have not applied but you are interested in doing so, please visit our site after May 20. There is a very small possibility that a very small number of spots will become available. If you are a faculty member and do not need accommodations in the dorm, please write to us at creteling@gmail.com.

Thank you for your interest in CreteLing!
