Gender, Class, and Determination in Ottawa

On September 18th I’ll be presenting my most recent research on French and nominal interpretation entitled “Limiting Gender” at Gender, Class, and Determination: A Conference on the Nominal Spine at the University of Ottawa. I propose (1) that word roots are productive in how they are nominalized and specified for gender, and (2) that this process is constrained by the ability to apply a coherent semantic interpretation to the combination of root and nominal class. Look for the abstract and handout from the conference here.
