Subject: Radio Show on UG


An upcoming episode of a CBC radio show about language, called 'And
Sometimes Y' (http://www.cbc.ca/andsometimesy/) concerns Universal Grammar,
in particular Everett's recent claims about Pirahã, and the response by
Nevins, Pesetsky and Rodrigues (for links and discussion, see the Language
Log: http://itre.cis.upenn.edu/~myl/languagelog/archives/004387.html). The
host, Russell Smith, is currently interviewing a number of people,
including Dan Everett and David Pesetsky (and me, which is why I know about
all this).

The episode will air on CBC Radio 1 on Saturday, June 23 from 11:30 am - 12
noon (in each Canadian time zone) and will replay at the same time on
Monday, June 25. You can listen to it on the radio (in Canada) or online
at http://www.cbc.ca/listen/index.html. Unfortunately, past episodes are
not available online - they're compiled by season and sold on CD.
