Contra to last week’s message, the Algonquian group will meet this semester Fridays from 1–2:45. Again, the first hour will be devoted to reading group. The second 45 minutes will be more of a lab meeting, led by Mi’gmaq Project Manager Elise McClay (McGill BA 2012). All are welcome to attend either or both parts.

In the coming weeks, the reading group will see practice presentations from students attending the upcoming 44th Algonquian Conference, in Chicago. First up, we have…

Elise McClay: “Possessive paradigms in Mi’gmaq: alienability as syntactic proximity”
Gretchen McCulloch: “Slots or scope? Preverb ordering in Mi’gmaq”
