Our Lab

The Penn Syntax Lab is an inclusive community of people working in generative syntax and its interfaces with morphology and semantics.  We are particularly interested in the theoretical implications of data from understudied varieties, and the scope of possible crosslinguistic variation. 

We are in the Department of Linguistics at the University of Pennsylvania, and have close ties with the Embick Lab in morphology and the Schwarz Lab in semantics.  We are also part of the MindCore community.

Please see the post tab on the right to check our upcoming talks. Our meetings take place on Fridays from 10:15am to 11:45am in a hybrid Zoom/in-person setting. Please reach out to “gmendes[at]sas[dot]upenn[dot]edu” if you’d like a Zoom link to join us.

We are pleased to announce the program of our Workshop on Locality in Theory, Processing, and Acquisition on March 31 – April 1!  You can register here. (registration is free!)

We are hiring a postdoctoral fellow for the 2023/2024 academic year!  Please find the posting here: https://apply.interfolio.com/122788
