Boyoung Kim successfully defended her dissertation on August 17! The title is Sensitivity to Islands in Korean-English Bilinguals, and the committee members were Robert Kluender, John Moore, Maria Polinsky (Harvard), and Vic Ferreira, in addition to supervisor Grant Goodall. Boyoung has been teaching Intro to Linguistics here at UCSD this summer and will be teaching at UC Berkeley in Fall.

"Prosody and the that-trace effect: An experimental study"

at the West Coast Conference on Formal Linguistics, at Simon Fraser University in Vancouver. This was a joint paper with Marc Garellek and Grant Goodall and will be appearing in the proceedings.

Spring '15

Because Grant is leading a seminar this quarter (Spring 2015) on "Grammatical and processing factors in sentence acceptability", where we will be reading and discussing all sorts of fascinating papers on this topic, we will not be having regular lab meetings this quarter. The schedule for the seminar is available at https://sites.google.com/a/socsci.ucsd.edu/lign225s15/. All are welcome!
