Thanks to everyone who was able to join us for our thorough discussion of Orita et al. 2013! We had some really excellent ideas for how to extend the model to connect with children's interpretations of utterances. Next time on May 19 @ 3:00pm in SBSG 2221, we'll be looking at an article that discusses how to evaluate formal models of acquisition, focusing on a particular model of early language acquisition as a case study:
Kol, S., Nir, B., & Wintner, S. 2014. Computational evaluation of the Traceback Method. Journal of Child Language, 41(1), 176-199.
See you then!
