  1. Hello,

    The slides of our poster can be found here. We will be available for live Q & A.

    Zoom link:

    Sunday May 31 12:30-2:00 (EDT)

  2. Good day, visitors to our poster!

  3. Thanks for your poster slides! Very interesting. I have probably a basic question but my understanding is that honorific agreement can also track the subject (not just the addressee). If so, how does that interact with the system you propose here (or does it)?

    • Thank you so much, Keir. Good point. We were talking with Martina and Betsy about this too, and we are thinking that maybe there needs to be an ALLOCUTIVE agreement domain (associated with the pragmatic persons) and another agreement domain tied to grammatical relations of the CP or TP. So, this would be parallel to their Duality of Person Hypothesis in a way.

  4. Really interesting stuff! You’ve given me a lot to think about for my own research involving pronouns in Korean and Japanese (as well as a few other other languages).

    • Hi Brittany. Thank you so much for your interest. We’d love to hear more about your work and we will plan to visit your poster tomorrow together.
