Sign language research featured on title page of Süddeutsche Zeitung
We knew that an article would feature our research on sign language evolution in the Süddeutsche Zeitung. But when we saw today that it appeared even on the first page, we were really surprised. Unfortunately, the article is not yet online available, so we cannot link it here, but it seemed interesting enough to mention this.
Further good news are that the CNRS 2020 Summer School on "Semantic shifts from lexicon to grammar – diachronic and typological perspectives" was accepted and will be held on the island of Porquerolles in the south of France from 14th to 25th September 2020. I myself will teach a two day workshop on computational methods. More information can be found on the official website.
