The 46th Annual Meeting of the Chicago Linguistic Society begins TODAY and runs through Saturday evening (culminating in our world-renowed CLS banquet). A full program can be found here.
U. Chicago participants include two invited speakers, the illustrious John Goldsmith (Main Session) and Jason Riggle (Probabilistic Theories of Grammar), as well as the following presenters:
Eleni Staraki, “On the Temporal Interpretation of Modals – A crosslinguistic comparison”
Max Bane and Morgan Sonderegger with Peter Graff (MIT), “Longitudinal phonetic variation in a closed system”
Elena Castroviejo Miró (postdoc) with Laia Mayol (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona), “Evaluative adverbs in questions: a comparison between French and Catalan”
Anastasia Giannakidou and Suwon Yoon, “No NPI licensing in clausal comparatives”
James Kirby, “A probabilistic model of category merger”
Also, a huge thank you to the officers of CLS 46 (Adam Baker, Rebekah Baglini, Tim Grinsell, Jonathan Keane, and Julia Thomas)—best of luck this weekend!
