Yale Grammatical Diversity Project gets recognition on National Grammar Day.
The most recent issue of Natural Language and Linguistic Theory contains a paper by Raffaella Zanuttini. With co-authors Miok Pak and Paul Portner, Dr. Zanuttini’s paper investigates the interpretive restrictions on the subjects of imperative, promissive, and exhortative sentences—what they call the “jussive” clause types.
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.
