Congratulations Prof. Kyle Gorman

We are pleased to announce that Kyle Gorman is the recipient of a 3-year Collaborative NSF Grant titled: Deconstructing Wordlikeness Judgments with collaborators Karthik Durvasula, Michigan State and Jimin Kahng, U. Mississippi​. In addition to analyzing different computational models to explain why it is that people rate nonce words on a gradient scale of acceptability, the project provides mentoring and research training opportunities for graduate students in modern experimental and computational methods, and will create an open-access, online database of the project's experimental results that serves as a resource for other researchers in the language sciences.
