The Weekly Newsletter of MIT Linguistics

Christopher Legerme, Cora Lesure, Lorenzo Pinton @ MIT’s Fall Splash (11/18-19)

Christopher Legerme, Cora Lesure, and Lorenzo Pinton represented MIT Linguistics at Fall Splash on November 18-19. Splash is an MIT student-run educational enrichment program for 9th-12th graders that draws a thousand students to MIT each November for a weekend of classes on all sorts of topics. Christopher and Lorenzo designed and taught “The Mathematical Foundations of Language” and Cora designed and taught two sections of “What’s in a word? An Introduction to Morphology”. Maya Honda observed their classes and attests that all three did a fantastic job of sharing their knowledge and their passion for linguistics with 60 students. Many students stayed after class to ask questions and seek advice about studying linguistics. Kudos to Chris, Cora, and Lorenzo!
