Language Science Center wins major NSF grant

The NSF has honored the LSC with a 5-year award to support interdisciplinary graduate training, through its NRT program (NSF Research Traineeship), a successor to the IGERT. The project, led by faculty and students from 10 departments across the entire university, will connect research on humans and machines, via a focus on how to succeed when Big Data is not available, the normal situation not only for all first-language learners, but also for researchers of nearly all the world's languages. Congratulations to the Director of the LSC, Colin Phillips, as well his Co-Principal Investigators, Rochelle Newman (Hearing & Speech Sciences), Hal Daumé (Computer Science), Robert DeKeyser (School of Languages), and our own Bill Idsardi.
