If the campus seemed a little empty last weekend, it's because many of our linguists were in Salt Lake City, UT for the Annual Meeting of the Linguistic Society of America. Current students, post-docs and faculty presenting papers or posters included:
Sharese King will be presenting "Language, locality and economy: Understanding Vocalic Variation among African Americans from Rochester, New York" next week on December 11, as part of UC Berkeley's Phonetics and Phonology Forum (Phorum).
Kate Lindsey will be giving a talk at the Conference of the Australian Linguistics Society 2017 on December 7 next week. Her talk, which draws on her extensive fieldwork on the Ende language, is titled "Completing the Typology: Evidence for Floating Segments from Ende".
