Thanks to everyone who was able to join our rousing discussion today of Crain & Thornton's (2012) article on syntax acquisition! Next time on May 30 at 10:30am in SBSG 2221, we'll be looking at an article that examines the interplay of language acquisition and language change, looking at the role of mistransmission in a dynamical system:
Sondregger, M. & Niyogi, P. (2010). Combining data and mathematical models of language change. Proceedings of the 48th Annual Meeting of the Association for Computational Linguistics, 1019-1029.
See you then!
