Jim McCloskey traveled to the University of Maryland to give a talk in their colloquium series on Friday November 30th. The title of the talk was Understanding Ellipsis: Corpus, Annotation, Theory and it presented an overview of the work of the Santa Cruz Ellipsis Project along with some of the preliminary results gradually emerging from the annotation work of the past three years. Being in College Park, Jim was able to re-connect with one of the veterans of that project— alumna Anissa Zaitsu, now a Baggett Fellow at Maryland— and also with former LRC visitor Annemarie van Dooren, who is now a fourth year student in the doctoral program at Maryland, working principally on the acquisition of modality.
