Prof. Parker presents research at CUNY

Prof. Parker will be heading to UC Davis March 14-17 to give a talk at the 31st Annual CUNY Human Sentence Processing Conference. His talk is titled “A multi-dimensional view of NPI licensing”, and will present new research showing that real-time Negative Polarity Item (NPI) licensing is driven by semantic and pragmatic conditions, and must involve more than a simple syntactic feature matching process as previously assumed.
