Guess who? And why!

Celebrating 50 years since "Guess Who?," U. Chicago has plenary speakers Howard Lasnik and Haj Ross himself, author of the paper that gave us "sluicing", at Sluicing and Ellipsis at 50, April 12-13. The program also includes a poster from Gesoel Mendes and Nick Huang, on "Null subjects and ellipsis from an idiom perspective," and a talk by 2006 alum Masaya Yoshida, Associate Professor of Linguistics at Northwestern, on "Condition C reconstruction, clausal ellipsis and island repair."
