Woods Retreats into a world of Semantics and Pragmatics
Senior Lecturer Rebecca Woods was an invited speaker at an innovative new venture, the Retreat for Students in Semantics and Pragmatics (ReSSP) held on 5-7 October. Aimed primarily at PhD students in formal semantics and pragmatics, 17 researchers from across Europe convened on the town of Olot in La Garrotxa, Catalonia, to share and develop ideas in an informal and supportive environment. Rebecca presented joint work with Tom Roeper on Non-adult questions in child language: a syntactico-pragmatic approach.
