Thanks to everyone who was able to join us for our delightfully thoughtful discussion of the Omaki & Lidz 2013 manuscript! Next time on Friday February 28 at 3pm in SBSG 2221, we'll be looking at an article that argues that recursion is a central part of cognition, even if it's curiously restricted in the realm of syntax (Levinson 2013).
Levinson, S. 2013. Recursion in pragmatics. Language, 89(1), 149-162.
In addition, we'll read a reply to that article that critically examines the assumptions underlying that argument (Legate et al. 2013 Manuscript).
