Thanks to everyone who was able to join us for an informative discussion of Perfors et al. (2011), along with the reply piece in Berwick et al. (2011)! Next time on May 2, we'll be looking at a different approach to addressing the same problem in language acquisition (structure-dependent rules) by Bouchard (2012). Interestingly, Bouchard is coming from a very different perspective, where the issue is not that too much has been assumed to be part of UG, but rather that not enough has.
Bouchard, D. (2012). Solving the UG Problem. Biolinguistics, 6(1), 1-31.
See you then!
