Here’s an update on some other recent past defenses – some more recent, some more past:
On September 17, Tommy Grano defended his dissertation proposal, ‘Toward a semantically based account of the distribution of control’. Way to go!
Over the summer months, Peter Klecha (“Focus-Related Verb Repetition and Nominalization in Luganda”), Rebekah Baglini (“Aspect, modality, and causative event structure: A new analysis of the English get-causative”), Christina Weaver (“Influences on the production of non-native sequences: Mandarin”) and Carissa Abrego-Collier (“Liquid co-occurrence and coarticulatory influences on /l/ and /r/ perception”) all successfully defended qualifying papers.
Congrats, all :]
