This semester, the syntax-semantics research group will meet at 3:00-4:30 pm on Fridays in room 117 (on weeks when no colloquium talks are scheduled). This is an informal venue where people interested in syntax and semantics gather to present their work in progress or discuss articles. Graduate students are particularly encouraged to present articles of their interest, get feedback by presenting various stages of their projects for term papers, evaluation papers or dissertations, or try out with practice talks for conferences. Please let Junko know if you want to present something.

The schedule for the coming few weeks are as follows:
