Clifton Langdon is defending his dissertation, entitled, “The Linguistic Structure and Neural Representation of Classifier Constructions: Through the Lens of Child Acquisition and Adult Usage,” Wednesday, December 11, at 3pm. The location is room 101 on the ground floor of the new dorm building (LLRH6). Come learn about Clifton’s proposal for shedding light on the long-perplexing question of how “classifier verbs” are structured (morphemic all the way down, or a combination of morphemic and gestural components?), using language acquisition and neuro-imaging as his tools. Join us if you’re free, the more the merrier!
Good luck on the end-of-semester crunch!
