Terplisi, Georgia

Nancy Clarke, Michaela Socolof, Annemarie van Dooren and Sigwan Thivierge are in Tbilisi with Maria Polinsky, continuing work on Georgian that grew out of the year-long Fieldmethods class that Masha taught with Omer Preminger. In addition, Nancy and Michaela are running ERP experiments supervised by Ellen Lau. One series looks at the processing of subject- and object-relative clauses in Georgian. Another compares responses to tense morphology, following different predictive cues (NP-case versus adverbials), adapting to Georgian the questions and methods that Dillon et al. 2011 applied to Hindi.
