The CoLa Reading Group will be holding its meetings on Mondays at 3pm in SBSG 2221 this quarter. We'll meet four times during the quarter, approximately every other week (schedule available here). Our first meeting will be held this coming Monday October 3rd, when we'll be looking at Dunbar, Dillon, & Idsardi (2010), who examine the utility of abstract linguistic representations viewed from a Bayesian perspective:
Dunbar, E., Dillon, B., & Idsardi, W. (2010 ms) A Bayesian Evaluation of the Cost of Abstractness. University of Maryland, College Park and University of Massachusetts, Amherst.
And remember: Even if you aren't able to come to the meeting in person, you're always welcome (and encouraged) to post on the reading group discussion board here!
See you next Monday!
