Please send information and news of departmental interest to Andrew Garrett.
A blog is a web log, so web news is bnews. The Calques editors have heard from the Linguistics Department website editors, a few doors down here in Bling Hall, that the department home page features a new spotlight research area this week!
Several Berkeley linguists are recently back from European travels:
- Susanne Gahl was an invited speaker at the 1st Workshop on Spoken Morphology: Phonetics and Phonology of Complex Words in Düsseldorf.
- Larry Hyman was in Paris to attend the 2nd International Congress "Towards Proto-Niger-Congo: Comparison and Reconstruction".
- Julia Nee und Amy Rose Deal haben einen Vortrag bei Sinn u. Bedetutung 21 in Edinburgh gehalten. (Peter Jenks was also a coauthor of a paper presented there!)
- And Eve Sweetser went to the Netherlands over the long holiday weekend to serve on a doctoral defense.
