Next Brown Bag Discussion Circle

The next brown bag discussion circle will be held in the Graduate Reading Room next Wednesday March 7th at 12pm.

I have received a few suggestions for articles. The consensus seems to be in favor of more reading in a functionalist vein, so I have settled upon a recent article by Martin Haspelmath which I found very thought provoking. I'm sure it will make for a lively discussion.

"Parametric versus functional explanations of syntactic universals"

Hope you all can make it!
