New paper by Aravind & Koring in Language Acquisition

A new paper on the acquisition of syntax has appeared in the journal Language Acquisition coauthored by our colleague Athulya Aravind and Loes Koring (who was a postdoctoral associate and teacher/advisor in our department in 2016-2018) — entitled “Experiencer troubles: A reappraisal of the predicate-based asymmetry in child passives”. Congratulations, Athulya and Loes!
