The incoming class

McLing is very happy to welcome and introduce to you the new (very impressive!) cohort of graduate students:

He has a BA in English/Portuguese translation and an MSc in Linguistics from UFRGS, Brazil.

Dan Goodhue‘s interests lie in the intersection of language, logic and thought. He earned his B.A. at the University of Vermont in political science and spent the past year in Montreal studying linguistics full time in our department.
