21 June, Colloquium on linguistic complexity

Date: Friday 21 June
Time: 10:00-13:00
Location: Room 6.05, P.C. Hoofthuis, Spuistraat 134, Amsterdam

On the occasion of Michel DeGraff's visit to Amsterdam, we are planning an informal lunchtime colloquium on linguistic complexity.

The colloquium will take the form of six very brief presentations (10 minutes each), followed by discussion. The programme is the following:
Sterre Leufkens "Learnability: complexity + transparency"
Jenny Audring "How complex is grammatical gender?"
Jeannette Schaeffer "On the complexity and learnability of direct object scrambling"
Judith Rispens "Complexity in bilingual acquisition: the role of phonotactic frequency of past tense forms"
Jakub Szymanik "Computational Complexity in Semantics"
Fred Weerman "The different faces of complexity"
