Reading session on creolization

For our Microcontact team meeting on September 27 we will read a recent Nature paper on creolization, which is being largely debated these days in different venues:
Blasi, Michaelis, and Haspelmath. 2017. Grammars are robustly transmitted even during the emergence of creole languages. Nature Human Behaviour. DOI: 10.1038/s41562-017-0192-4.

For background prep, please read Aboh & DeGraff. 2017. A Null Theory of Creole Formation Based on Universal Grammar. The Oxford Handbook of Universal Grammar, Ian Roberts (ed), OUP.

The reading group will meet in Trans 10, room 0.51, on Wednesday 27 September, at 10.15-12:00.

You are all cordially invited to join, but please drop an email to Francesco Ciconte if you are planning to attend (for chairs :).
