Posted on September 16, 2014 by

This year’s LEL masterclass programme has some exciting offerings!

Date Speaker Topic Time Venue
Wed 15th Oct Aaron Ecay (UPenn) Constructing quantitative grammatical arguments 11-1 Graduate School Training Room
Tue 21st Oct Ad Backus (Tilburg) Usage-based linguistics and language contact data: a match made in heaven? 9-11 Graduate School Seminar Room 2

The format will be shorter this time (2 hours as a default) and as a default, we are asking speakers to suggest a list of papers for discussion to turn it into more of a seminar/discussion group rather than a long lecture. Suggestions from postgraduate students for the second semester are still welcome. Abstracts, reading and further details will be updated when we receive them.

The masterclasses are designed for PhD students, but staff, MA students and very keen undergraduates are welcome to attend!
