Reading Group in Syntax

Organized by Luka Crnic and Julie Goncharov

We will explore selected topics in syntactic theory (in particular, binding theory, ellipsis, A-movement). The discussion of pre-circulated readings will be lead both by faculty members and by students. The reading group also serves as preparation for the HUJI/TAU Winter School in Syntax, which will be hosted by the LLCC.

Reading group: Current Approaches to Modeling Discourse Update

Repeats every 2 weeks every Monday until Fri Jan 26 2018 .
12:30pm to 2:00pm

 

Reading group on “Current Approaches to Modeling Discourse Update”

Organized by Aynat Rubinstein and Yael Greenberg.

This reading group will examine current work on the way to model the dynamics of information exchange and speech acts in discourse.

Specifically, we will start by looking at two foundational theoretical frameworks, namely Farkas & Bruce 2010, Farkas & Roelofsen 2015 ‘on the Table’ theory, and Manfred Krifka’s work (e.g. Krifka 2013, 2015, 2017) on speech acts and discourse update.
