BLS 2019 News

Typically, in early February, Berkeley has hosted the annual meeting of the Berkeley Linguistic Society (BLS). This year we are experimenting with a new format, where instead of a general conference we will be holding a focused two-day event on a particular theme. The theme for this year's meeting is mass/count distinction(s). A call for papers will be posted in mid-October.


Slides up from Funding Workshop!

Please find the slides from the presentations by Joan Maling and Mandana Seyfeddinipur from the Funding Workshop.
