Congratulations to Khalil Iskarous, who has been appointed as Associate Editor at Language starting January 2018! Read more here.

Monica Do and Alumna Barbara Tomaszewicz attended the Summer School of Statistical Methods for Linguistics and Psychology in Potsdam.

Monica Do presented “How are questions made? A production study of object wh-questions” (with Elsi Kaiser and Pengchen Zhao) and Jesse Storbeck presented “Acquisition of categorical non-adjacent dependencies in an artificial grammar” (with Elsi Kaiser and Toben Mintz) at the 23rd annual Architectures and Mechanisms of Language Processing conference (AMLAP 2017) in Lancaster, UK.

Here are some nice shots by Jesse, including one of him at the top of Scafell (3,163 ft) in the Lakes District. Jesse gives special thanks to Jane and Steve for helping him find his way off the peak in the thick fog!
