No Meeting on November 22

Dakotah on a TSL learner

Tomorrow Dakotah will be discussing a way to modify a typical SP learner to account for TSL stringsets. Any feedback would be appreciated, on topics from the algorithm itself to the types of things that should be discussed when presenting a Gold-style learner. Hope to see you all there!

Jon on subregular n-languages and -functions.

Tomorrow, Jon will be continuing his talk from a few weeks ago on subregular n-functions. Things have been updated some since the last time. The project is still developing, so Jon would appreciate any feedback you may have on the idea. Hope to see you all there!

Aniello on MG Processing

Today Aniello will be talking about his research on modelling sentence processing with a top-down parser for Minimalist grammars. This is a practice talk, so we might go longer than usual. Hope to see you all there, and I'm sure Aniello is looking forward to your feedback.

No Meeting on Oct 11

We're not meeting this week because of AMP. There's plenty of computational talks on the AMP program, and I encourage you all to attend those instead.

Next week, Oct 18, Aniello will give a practice talk in the reading group.

Schedule Update

Alëna will be out this week, so Thomas will be talking about ISL tree transductions. Looking forward to seeing you all there!
