Chicagoans in and out of SWAMP

Last month, Rebekah Baglini presented a paper called “The syntax and event structure of the get-causative” at the 4th Meeting of the Arizona Linguistics Circle in Tuscon. In addition, the 2010 iteration of everyone’s favorite acronym, the Semantics Workshop of the MidWest & Prairies (SWAMP), is happening this weekend (Nov. 13) at the University of Michigan, and Rebekah will be giving a talk on “The scalar source of adjectival participles.”

Not to be outdone, fellow third-year grad student Tim Grinsell will also give a talk at SWAMP, entitled “Two types of Russian perfectives.”

Good luck!
