Tyler wins NSF grant

Congratulations to Tyler Knowlton, who has earned an NSF Doctoral Dissertation Research Improvement grant for "The mental representation and acquisition of the universal quantifiers,'' with advisor Jeffrey Lidz. "Gaining a better understanding of how speakers represent and acquire words [like "each" and "every"],'' writes Tyler in his winning proposal, "will improve our understanding of the logical primitives of thought and the ways in which children make use of their input when learning a language."
