What I did this summer: Norvin Richards

Norvin spent three weeks teaching introductory syntax in St. Petersburg, Russia, at the New York-St. Petersburg Institute of Linguistics, Cognition, and Culture (NYI).

He also spent a weekend teaching and learning Wampanoag at the third annual Wôpanâak immersion camp (at which only Wampanoag is spoken).

And he went to Budapest for the Minimalist Approaches to Syntactic Locality (MASL) conference, where he gave a talk about Improper Movement and tough-movement

His other project over the summer was finishing his book, Uttering Trees, which is scheduled to come out as an LI Monograph in 2010.
