|John McCarthy presents two lectures at SIL colloquium series|
John McCarthy, an eminent phonologist and distinguished University professor in the Department of Linguistics at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst, will present two lectures at UND as part of the summer Summer Institute of Linguistics colloquium series. Titled "Introducing Optimality Theory," the lectures will be held at 8 p.m. Wednesday and Thursday, July 30 and 31, in Room 5, Gamble Hall. The public is invited.
Dr. McCarthy is author of "A Thematic Guide to Optimality Theory" (Cambridge, 2002), "Hidden Generalizations: Phonological Opacity in Optimality Theory (Equinox, 2007), and "Doing Optimality Theory" (Blackwell, 2008). He edited or co-edited five books and is the author or co-author of over 100 articles. His Boston accent returns in unguarded moments, and he’ll be drawing on evidence from that dialect in one of his lectures.
There is no charge for the event, and seats are on a first come, first served basis.
