The sixth annual LGCU Welcome Workshop will be held on Friday the 17th in SS 560A, starting at 2:10 PM. Sponsored by the Linguistics Graduate Course Union, the workshop provides a venue for new students (and a few returning ones) to present research that they've been working on. This serves as a way for the rest of the department to get to know the newcomers and their research interests.
This year's schedule features the following talks:
Emilia Melara (Ph.D.): "Tense and deixis: Revisiting sequence of tense in English."
Daniel McDonald (MA): "ECMs in Latin and Ancient Greek."
Patrick Murphy (Ph.D.): "Split accusativity in Finnish."
Frederick Gietz (MA): "A semantic treatment for dual-transitive verbs."
Ruth Maddeaux (Ph.D.): "Me, myself, and I: The role of the untriggered reflexive in the English pronominal system."
Erin Hall (Ph.D.): "Style and substance in the Canadian Shift: New evidence from Toronto."
Emily Blamire (Ph.D.): Gay speech in North American television."
Paulina Lyskawa (MA): "An ultrasound study of /ɹ/ production among native and non-native English speakers."
Luke West (MA): "Interaction of intonation and lexical tone in Sgaw Karen."
Yining Nie (MA): "Derived environment phonology in Distributed Morphology."
Thanks to Julie Doner, Ruth Maddeaux, Dan Milway, and the LGCU in general for all of their work in organizing the workshop!
