SyntaxLab exists to enable people with interests in syntax to hear about syntax-related research taking place in Cambridge. Its primary aim is to create a forum in which researchers who would like feedback from a “home” audience can get it in a friendly and informal setting, and, more generally, it aims to stimulate discussion and make syntactically oriented researchers more aware of the range of syntax-related research being done in Cambridge. Presentations are more like “teaching seminars” than formal talks, and presentations on work-in-progress are particularly welcome. Outside researchers with links to syntacticians in Cambridge are also very welcome to present.
