The Meaning Group is invited to a special session of Magdalena Kaufmann’s Semantics Seminar featuring guest speaker Ian Roberts (Linguistics, Cambridge University). He will be discussing his work on embedded sentences and complementizers. Note that this meeting runs longer than the usual Meaning Group slot (1:00-3:30pm) and takes place in the Business School building: BUSN 122.
