February news: DGfS, nominations

Right, just because somebody at CASTL Blog HQ sometimes forgets to press the “Publish” button doesn’t mean nothing is going on. Here’s a recap of (relatively) recent news:

  • CASTL was prominent on the program of the 2011 edition of the annual conference of the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Sprachwissenschaft, which took place in Göttingen. On the program were CASTL senior researcher Marit Westergaard with colleague Anita Røreng (Word order and scrambling in double object constructions in German), researcher Øystein Vangsnes (Rolling up the North Germanic noun phrase) and postdoc Kristine Bentzen (Introduction to object shift), as well as PhD students Alexander Pfaff (Position Matters, not Form!) and Sandhya Sundaresan (Monstrous agreement, de se attitudes, anaphora: evidence from Tamil)
  • Congratulations also to Øystein Vangsnes and CASTL affiliate Laura Janda, who have been nominated to receive the University’s annual prizes for popularization and outstanding research for 2011. We’ll be sure to let you know of the results, which are due in late March
