Summer Linguistic Institute: Syntax Variation Workshop

July 7, 2013

Congratulations to Cristina for a successful talk at the Syntax and Variation workshop this weekend at the Summer Linguistic Institute! Her talk was titled What can variation tell about acquisition and what can acquisition tell about variation?, and she discussed the influence of variable input in first language acquisition, using experimental data with a focus on the comprehension of grammatical number and verbal agreement morphosyntax across Spanish and Portuguese dialects.

A big congratulations also goes to Alan, who was an organizer of this workshop– it was a huge success! Many of our lab members came out to support the event; it was a fun and intellectually stimulating weekend with lots of syntax, variation, and acquisition!

(I think the workshop slides and handouts are going to be posted on their website soon.)

 

I hope everyone is having a great summer, and I hope those at the Summer Linguistic Institute are enjoying all of the linguistic adventures.
