Meeting Description:

''Linguistics Flash - Mobs'' is a series of video conferences thought to be a way to keep the linguistic community connected during this troublesome period. In each conference, two scholars will face long-standing theoretical issues making use of different frameworks: fun is guaranteed with these ''sword fights''!

Program Information:

On September 30, 6:30 PM (CET), Jason Merchant from University of Chicago and Kyle Johnson from UMass Amherst will debate the topic of ''Ellipsis''. Moderator will be Emanuela Sanfelici from University of Padova.

The ''Linguistics Flash - Mobs'' video conferences will be streamed on youtube at the following link:

We hope to see you all there.
