It’s that time of year again! This Saturday, March 10 will be Linguistics at Santa Cruz (LASC), the annual UCSC linguistics research conference showcasing second- and third-year graduate student research. The all-day event will take place in Stevenson Fireside Lounge. Four talks will be given this year spanning the subfields of syntax, semantics, pragmatics, psycholinguistics, and numerous combinations therein. Following the talks there will be a poster session with research devoted to a similar mix. The languages investigated this year include English, Somali, Hebrew, Old Japanese, and Gujarati. At the end of the day, the Distinguished Alumnus Lecture will be given by Peter Svenonius (University of Tromsø) on “The syntactic word.” Don’t miss it!
