Thanks to everyone who was able to join us for our exciting discussion of Levinson 2013 & the Legate et al. 2013 reply manuscript! We had some particularly interesting thoughts about potential recursion in non-syntactic domains, such as theory of mind, which relates to our article for Friday March 14 at 3:20pm in SBSG 2221: Goodman & Stuhlmüller 2013. In particular, G&S2013 discuss a rational model of how speakers interpret utterances, where listeners model the speaker's model of selecting utterances:

See you then!
