Holiday Party 2012

McGill linguists gathered last Friday for the department’s annual Holiday Party, hosted in Lydia White and James White’s beautiful home.  Students, faculty, and staff joined forces to dispatch a diverse spread of dishes.  These pictures just in — send more!

 

Three New PhDs! (and a Food Festival)

As readers of McLing may know, Bethany Lochbihler (‘Aspects of Argument Licensing’), Jozina van der Klok (‘TAM Markers in Paciran Javanese’), and David-Etienne Bouchard (‘Long-Distance Degree Quantification and the Grammar of Subjectivity’) have successfully defended their Ph.D dissertations in the past two weeks. Congratulations again!
McLing reporters managed to send some pictures to the newsroom documenting the happy lives of the new doctors. The graphic documentation also includes proof of the food festival prepared by Marzieh Mortazavinia (here seen cooking) and her team, after Martina Wiltschko’s colloquium last Friday.
Life is good around the McLing headquarters.

Thanks to everyone who made this party happen, and especially to our host and chefs, Sepideh, Oriana and Jeff.
