Announcing the Society for Language Development's Annual Symposium:

Generalization in language learning

Thursday November 1, 2007, 1:00 - 5:00
Boston University, George Sherman Student Union

Janet Pierrehumbert - Northwestern

Josh Tenenbaum - MIT

Steven Pinker - Harvard

Language acquisition requires generalizations that involve multiple
linguistic levels. The complexity of the interrelations among
structural levels in language presents a challenge to the learner --
even a learner endowed with prodigious capacities for statistical
computation. Given this challenge, how might a data-driven learner
succeed? The 2007 SLD symposium presents three speakers who will
address this issue, plus discussion and afterward an informal
reception. Please join us!
