Yale Linguistics is happy to announce the promotions of Claire Bowern to Tenure, and Ashwini Deo and Gaja Jarosz to Associate Professor. Congratulations!
Computational & Mathematical Linguistics
A paper by Gaja Jarosz, Learning with hidden structure in Optimality Theory and Harmonic Grammar: beyond Robust Interpretive Parsing, appears in the current issue of Phonology.
This week, the senior undergraduate students in the department begin their final project presentations as they get set for graduation.
Gaja Jarosz, along with co-author (and former Yale Cognitive Science student) J. Alex Johnson has recently published a paper in the journal Language Learning and Development.
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.
