Rodrigo wins summer grant on ellipsis

Congrats again to Rodrigo Ranero! DC's Cosmos Club will support "The syntax of silence in Santiago Tz'utujiil, and endangered Mayan language," a project Rodrigo will undertake this summer, furthering his work on ellipsis. The Cosmos Club was founded in 1878 for the promotion of science, literature, art and "their mutual improvement by social intercourse." Rodrigo's grant is part of what since 1998 has been the club's main enterprise: a program of small research grants for graduate students enrolled in selected universities in the Washington, D.C. area.
