April 15, 2016

Yale linguists delivered two presentations at GLOW (Generative Linguistics in the Old World), held at Georg-August University in Göttingen, the Netherlands from April 5-7, 2016. 

Ashwini Deo delivered “The performativity of aspect: imperfective assertions in Marathi,” an abstract of which is available here. Additionally, Ashwini, Sara Sánchez Alonso, and Maria Piñango presented “Varying circumstances of evaluation and the ser/estar distinction in Spanish,” representing a formal semantics perspective on the phenomenon, which members of the Language & Brain Lab have also been approaching from experimental and diachronic perspectives.
