Chicagoans heading for Berkeley this month

A number of U.Chicagoans will be giving papers at BLS36 this month (program with abstracts here), on a variety of topics including prosody, syntax, historical phonology and discourse.

Max Bane will be talking on “A Combinatoric Model of Variation in the English Dative Alternation”.

Andrew Dombrowski (Slavic/Ling.) will present his paper, “When is orthography not just orthography? The case of the Novgorod birchbark letters”.

James Slotta (Anthro./Ling.) is slated to present on ”Multifunctionality and inalienability: Propositional and discourse functions in Yopno possessive constructions”.

Morgan Sonderegger (Computer Science) will give a paper entitled “Testing for frequency and structural effects in an English stress shift”.

Great to see so many linguists representing so many departments. Good luck, all!
