Linguistics

Food and ideas bring people together.  Our weekly lunch talk series provides students and faculty with the opportunity to present their in-progress work to a supportive, interdisciplinary audience.

This is the last in a series of three lectures by distinguished phonologist Paul Smolensky, Krieger-Eisenhower Professor of Cognitive Science at Johns Hopkins University, generously supported by Dave Baggett.
