Berlage in Seminar

Posted on December 11, 2008 by

This week’s seminar featured visiting lecturer in linguistics Eva Berlage (Manchester/Paderborn) on “Changing complements in English.”  The very interesting talk was followed by drinks and lively discussion (much of which centered around the contrast between more than one person being “elected minister*s* of parliament” but not “*elected prime ministers.)  Tune in next week (same time, same place) for Sonja Eisenbeiss (Essex) on “Morphological contrasts in child language and child-directed speech.”
