I taught an intensive course on ‘Sign Language Acquisition’ at the Linguistic Society of America Summer Institute in Lexington, KY, July 5-Aug. 1. The students were all very interested in this topic and we had excellent discussions. I appreciated the chance to share work in this area. I also attended two other courses and a number of presentations. I always like to recommend the Summer Institute especially for graduate students, as it’s a great time to be immersed in linguistics and to take advantage of the opportunity to learn subjects you wouldn’t necessarily be exposed to at your home institution.
