Linguistics Professor teams up with Undergraduate Student, Luke Tuttle
Professor Aniko Csirmaz is working with Luke Tuttle this semester through UROP. The project that they are working on deals with the Epistemic Containment Principle (ECP). Luke explains, "There have been informal discussions that marked prosody (intonation/stress) may have an effect on the application of the syntactic phenomenon known as the Epistemic Containment Principle (ECP), a type of restricted scope interaction (von Fintel and latridou 2003). The purpose of the project is to evaluate the claim that marked prosody may indeed have such an effect. In addition, the information collected may also bear on the claim that there is individual variation in whether the ECP is operative."
Best of luck to Luke and Professor Csirmaz!
