Talks by Our Linguists
Arunachalam, Sudha, Syrett, Kristen, & Waxman, Sandra R. Can adverbs call attention to manner of motion for 2-year-olds learning verbs? Boston University Conference on Language Development from November 4–6.
Syrett, Kristen, Baker, Hannah, Kalkstein, Ariana, & Musolino, Julien. Let’s disambiguate sentences together: What children know about the semantics of ‘together’, and where pragmatics steps in. Boston University Conference on Language Development from November 4–6.
This talk presents work based on Kristen’s ongoing collaboration with Julien Musolino in Psychology and features two Rutgers undergraduates as coauthors. Hannah Baker was awarded a travel grant from SAS and a Paula Menyuk travel award from the conference to attend. This is quite an honor for an undergrad, since acceptance of talks to BUCLD is highly competitive. Congratulations, Hannah!
