thumb 331 802


Shannon received her PhD in Linguistics from Harvard University. She works at the interface of syntax and semantics, with a particular interest in the interplay between language and concepts. Drawing from a mix of experimental methods and theoretical perspectives, her research addresses questions like: How does the architecture of human language reflect the way we mentally model the world around us? How do the grammatical choices we encounter help shape the mental models we build? What are
the basic building blocks of linguistic meaning, and how are these building blocks bundled up across languages? Specific topics she
has worked on include binding and reflexivity, argument structure, clausal complementation, and attitude reports


Hive Mind is a new working group for the RuCCS community. The goal of the group is to offer a space for casual conversations and collaborative thinking about work-in-progress, new research directions, or topics we want to learn more about.
