What we did this summer: MIT linguists at the LSA Institute

Four MIT linguistics faculty members taught at the LSA Institute in Berkeley this summer:

  • Adam Albright taught “Morphological innovation and change”
  • Kai von Fintel and Sabine Iatridou taught “Morphology, syntax, and semantics of modals”
  • Donca Steriade taught “Correspondence and the phonological lexicon”

Donca also gave the Edward Sapir Lecture on “Units of representation for linguistic rhythm”. In addition, third-year grad student Peter Graff attended the institute on a LSA Summer Institute Fellowship.
