Thanks to everyone who was able to join us winter quarter! We definitely covered some very interesting material and had some invigorating discussions. The schedule is now tentatively set for Spring 2011, with a new time that seems likely to accommodate more people's schedules (based on the feedback I received):
Every other Monday, beginning April 11th
Time: 2:15pm - 3:30pm
Location: SSL 427
The readings we'll be looking at this quarter focus on computational models of phonological learning (stress, tone, phonological categories, etc.), as well as some computational learning theory papers that attempt to connect with the cognitive process of language learning. More details can be found at the schedule page, with links to both the readings and related reference materials.
