This week we’ll hear two dry-run talks. First will be Matthew Dryer and Lea Brown, giving us a dry-run of their talk “Semantic factors governing the order of object and verb in Walman, a language of Papua New Guinea.” The abstract can be found here.
Then, we’ll hear from Randi Moore (again!) as she gives us a dry-run of her talk for WAIL: the Workshop on American Indigenous Languages. Randi’s talk is entitled “Spatial reference frame use in Isthmus Zapotec: a qualitative analysis of strategy variation,” and her abstract can be found here.
