Stanford linguists at LSA

As we immodestly pointed out in last week’s post about LSA practice talks, there will be a large number of our department colleagues and alumni at LSA 2013. As was immodestly tallied at the practice talk session the other day, current Stanford affiliations account for about 20% of the entire LSA program!

Here’s the full list of Stanford linguists (or, if we may submit an appropriately timed Hobbit-themed pun, Stanflings) who will be presenting in Boston in January:
