On Tuesday, May 2, Adrian Stegovec will be presenting parts of Yasutada Sudo’s dissertation (MIT 2012, “On the Semantics of Phi Features on Pronouns”), in partial fulfillment of the requirements for credit in LING 6410. The presentation will focus on the sections listed below. Let us know if you want to attend and don’t have access to the dissertation.
