Most quarters we have a Fest on a particular linguistic topic. Our
(first?) summer fest will be on ‘other’ (honoring Iara, who knows more than anyone about this topic, at least in Italian 🙂 ). If you would like to participate, bring a handout on relevant data from any language and be prepared to talk for 5-15 minutes (depending on how many others want to participate). Suggested topics include alternative vs.
additional ‘other’; definiteness and ‘other’; numbers and ‘other’; ‘other’ and the number ‘one’; but there are doubtless Others.
Even if you don’t want to participate, please come! See you all soon!
