After receiving some input on the kinds of topics people are interested in reading about, I've put together the reading schedule for winter 2011, available at the schedule page of the website. We'll be focusing on some fundamental principles behind models of language development, as well as the connection between language acquisition and language change, and language evolution.
Still to be done: Setting an exact time for our every-other-weekly meeting. Please email me with the times during the week you're available for a 1-1.5 hour meeting. I'm leaning towards sometime on Wednesdays if possible. I realize that schedules are still a little in flux, but let me know when you can.
