Synt-ex Reading Group, 1/16

We are starting up our experimental syntax reading group for the winter semester! Our first meeting is this Tuesday, the 16th at the Linguistics building, room 117 at 12pm. There will be snacks, and feel free to bring your lunch. In addition to outlining our plan for the semester, we will discuss this short Scientific American article: https://www.scientificamerican.com/article/how-to-understand-the-deep-structures-of-language/#.

For inspiration, here are some topics we have thought we would like to include: artificial grammar, syntax in songbirds, L2 syntax acquisition, prosody and syntax, computational models, syntax in sign language.

We hope to see you at the first brainstorming meeting !
