Next time on 11/21: Mitchener & Becker (2011)

Thanks to those of you who were able to join our nicely in-depth discussion of Alishahi & Pyykkonen (2011)'s article on syntactic bootstrapping!  I think we figured out some of the details that were glossed over, and these really helped to understand the contribution of the study.  

Next time, on Nov 21 (@3pm in SBSG 2221), we'll be looking at an article that examines how a subtle syntactic distinction that has specific semantic implications (called the raising-control distinction) could be learned.

Mitchener, G. & Becker, M. (2011). Computational Models of Learning the Raising-Control DistinctionResearch on Language and Computation, 8(2), 169-207.

See you then!
