Linguistic Society of America Annual Meeting

There were quite a few members of the department presenting at the LSA this past weekend in Boston.

Keren Rice gave the Presidential Address, entitled “Variation, Phonology, and Fieldwork.”

Bridget Jankowski gave a talk: "A variationist approach to disentangling grammatical change and
register change."

Derek Denis gave a talk: "Grammaticalization? change in the right periphery from 1875 to 2003."

Nicholas Welch gave two talks: "The bearable lightness of being" and "Propping up predicates: BE-support in Tlicho Yatii."

Bronwyn Bjorkman presented a poster: "Aspectual ergative splits and perfective-linked oblique case."

A number of alumni were also present. Mike Barrie, Kyumin Kim, and Lyn Tieu presented posters, and Tanya Slavin and Nicole Rosen presented talks at the LSA.
