UCL Psychology and Language Sciences


Syntax Reading Group

The syntax reading group (SRG) is a group made up of mainly staff and postgraduates from the department of Phonetics and Linguistics at UCL who share an interest in minimalist syntax. Linguists from other departments or other colleges are very welcome to join us. The group meets every two weeks or so.

Each meeting has the format of a seminar, where a paper (which should be read in advance) is discussed by the participants. The different papers are chosen to cover a variety of topics which may reflect the interests and fields of specialization of the individual members of the group.

Venue: Chandler House, 2 Wakefield Street
Time: Wednesdays afternoon, times vary.

If you want to join the group or have any queries, please email Wenkai Tay - wenkai.tay.18@ucl.ac.uk
