Having moved on from broad language family overviews, ErgLab will be starting its discussion of theoretical approaches to ergativity. Robert will present Johns 2000, which surveys a variety of theoretical approaches to ergativity (email Robert for a copy). Jessica will be contextualizing the discussion by giving a few more examples of canonically ergative languages and discussing some of the big questions they raise. As always, ErgLab will meet on Thursday at 1:30 in room 117.
