Tim Hunter invited to MIT workshop

October 10, 2010 alumnus Tim Hunter is an invited speaker at the First Workshop on Minimalist Parsing, with the talk Left-Corner Parsing of Minimalist Grammars. The talk relates psycholinguistic work on the processing of wh-dependencies, where there is much evidence for active prediction of gaps, to theories of incremental parsing using Minimalist Grammars, as developed by Ed Stabler. Also invited is former UMD postdoc, and present professor at UMass Amherst, Kristine Yu.
