Also over the break … talks by Hadas and Omer

Both Hadas Kotek and Omer Preminger gave talks over the break at the Jerusalem/Tel Aviv Syntax-Semantics Reading Group.  Hadas’s talk was entitled “What Hebrew multiple questions can teach us about interrogative probing, and how”, and Omer’s talk a few weeks earlier was entitled “Against ‘crashes’: Evidence from Kichean and Zulu” (with an encore presentation at Ben Gurion University on on Dec. 27).

Hadas also gave a talk on “Many readings of Most” at the Hebrew University’s Logic, Language and Cognition Center, based on joint work in experimental semantics with Yasutada Sudo and Martin Hackl.
