The Santa Cruz SPOT group (Syntax-Prosody in Optimality Theory) joined the week-long SOTA IV workshop (SOciety for Typological Analysis) in St. Petersburg, Florida (1/13-1/17, 2020), where exciting talks and lively discussions were intermingled with hands-on tutorials on the SPOT application and OTWorkplace. Some photos are below.
