SBU MathLing Reading Group

This is the website for the Mathematical Linguistics Reading Group (MLRG) in the Department of Linguistics at Stony Brook University.

The reading group provides a venue for

  • paper discussions,
  • practice talks,
  • invited talks,
  • presentations of ongoing research,
  • and much more.

Pretty much anything goes, as long as it has some formal/mathematical component to it. The group is very interdisciplinary in nature and we welcome guests from other departments.
