    Topic Notes: Focus and Ellipsis The seminar will look at these phenomena, and interactions between them. Topics include alternative semantics for focus and contrastive topic; the prosodic phonology of focus; interactions among focus, ellipsis, and bound variables; focus and scalar implicature; syntactic and semantic formulations of ellipsis; focus licensing of ellipsis; arguments against alternative semantics for focus; arguments favoring syntactic or semantic accounts of ellipsis. A few classes will also be dedicated to cross-modal semantics.

    This course will cover emerging topics and methods in field linguistics, with a focus on quantitative methods. Topics include: psycholinguistic experiments in the field; psycholinguistic research based on observational data (e.g. language acquisition studies); documentation of conversation, including research on conversational structure (e.g. turn timing); and documentation of variation, including quantitative sociolinguistic studies. Students will learn to conduct, as well as reproduce, quantitative analyses of field data using the programming language R. Background in field methods and/or R are helpful but not required.
