Kristen DonPaul (co-supervised with Ana Teresa Pérez-Leroux ) has completed her requirements for the MA in Linguistics program at the University of Toronto. Her forum paper, entitled The Prime(d) Position: Priming Spanish Adjectives in Heritage Speakers of Spanish investigated word order within DPs in heritage speakers and native speakers of Spanish. Congrats Kristen!!
On Friday Dec. 4, Yu-Leng Lin and I will be presenting at the Psychology department’s Teaching and Learning Community of Practice. We’ll be talking about the web-based experiments that we have recently included as part of the Psychology of Language (JLP374). The meeting will take place in the Psychology lounge at 1pm.
Over the summer of 2015, work-study assistants Neda Alavi and Amanjit Singh Kainth put together some useful templates for running experiments using Ibex Farm (written by Alex Drummond). The results of their project are available here: Toronto-Psycholinguistics-Experiments
Starting in January 2015, I will be an Assistant Professor (limited-term) at the Department of Linguistics at the University of Toronto. In the winter term I am teaching JLP471 (Advanced psycholinguistics) and LIN1205 (Experimental Design).
After a great year in France, I just arrived at McGill University in Montreal to begin a post-doc position. I’ll also be teaching Ling 390, Neuroscience of Language, starting in January 2014.
Together with Juliette Thuilier I am organizing a one-day workshop in partnership with ATALA and Labex-EFL entitled ‘Approches quantitatives en corpus et psycholinguistiques : Ordre des mots et des constituants’ or in English, ‘Quantitative approaches in corpus linguistics and psycholinguistics : Word order and constituent order,’ to take place at INALCO in the 13th arrondissement of Paris on October 18th. Our invited speaker is Joan Bresnan of Stanford University. We are thrilled with the program, which is available here along with other information. To register (for free) please send an e-mail to journee dot labex dot atala at gmail dot com. Hope to see you there!
Update: Slides and audio for many of the talks from the workshop are now available on the website.
