Two of Yale’s linguists have papers in the most recent issue of Language, the Journal of the Linguistic Society of America. Claire Bowern’s work (with co-author Quentin Atkinson) uses Bayesian inference to propose divisions within the Pama-Nyungan language family of Australia, while Dennis Ryan Storoshenko (with co-author Chung-hye Han) argues for a novel account of the Korean anaphor caki, which has a 30-year history of conflicting analyses in the literature.
