le calendrier, la salle et le matériel:
The reading group discusses a broad range of studies on the learnability of syntax, including formal learnability results, computer simulations, and experimental findings from language acquisition. We are interested in questions such as the following: Is negative evidence necessary for syntax to be learnable by an algorithm or by a child? What is the role of probabilistic or statistical information in the acquisition of syntax? What are the implications of formal learnability for the architecture of syntax? Can learnability discriminate among alternative approaches to the existence and the nature of syntactic parameters?
