THEORIES AND METHODOLOGIES

Registration form

 

This workshop aims at investigating the relations between the properties of Universal Grammar, the various theories of variation and language acquisition, and the different methodologies we have to collect and use data. This includes (but is not limited to) big data, machine learning, interviews, on-line questionnaires, and other strategies that, step by step, are becoming more and more used in our (and adjacent) fields.
