Alan Yu gave two invited lectures in Canada this past couple weeks. The first lecture, “Washo Word Prosody”, was presented at the Workshop on Structure and Constituency in the Languages of the Americas (WSCLA 15) at the University of Ottawa in Ontario. He then presented “When does perceptual compensation fail? The implications of analyzing channel bias rationally” at the Workshop on Computational Modelling of Sound Pattern Acquisition at the University of Alberta – Edmonton.
Meanwhile, third-year grad Alice Lemieux also presented at University of Ottawa for WSCLA 15 a couple weeks ago. Her presentation was titled “Small but significant – body part incorporation in Washo,” and the abstract can be found here.
