Bondarenko defends!

Congratulations to Tanya Bondarenko, who successfully and excellently defended her dissertation, titled “Anatomy of an Attitude”!

The thesis explores the syntax and semantics of different types of tensed embedded clauses, with lots of intricate data from Russian, Buryat, and Korean, and innovative analyses of their compositional semantics.

As previously announced, this fall Tanya will be taking a tenure track position as Assistant Professor of Linguistics at Harvard University.
