Announcing the LSA Fellows Class of 2016
Friday, September 4, 2015 - 11:11am
The Linguistic Society of America is proud to announce that ten of the field's leading linguists have been named to the newest class of LSA Fellows:
- Karlos Arregi, University of Chicago
- Robert Blust, University of Hawai’i at Manoa
- Jonathan Bobaljik, University of Connecticut
- Eve V. Clark, Stanford University
- William Croft, University of New Mexico
- Kai von Fintel, Massachusetts Institute of Technology
- Lisa Green, University of Massachusetts at Amherst
- Sabine Iatridou, Massachusetts Institute of Technology
- Maria Polinsky, University of Maryland
- Alan Yu, University of Chicago
LSA Fellows are recognized annually for their "distinguished contributions to the discipline". Previously inducted LSA Fellows include Noam Chomsky, William Labov, Steven Pinker and Calvert Watkins. The first class of LSA Fellows was inducted in 2006; full lists of LSA Fellows by last name and by year of induction are available on the LSA site.
This year's class of LSA Fellows have achieved distinction both through their research in a variety of linguistic fields and through their service to linguistics and the LSA. Dr. von Fintel currently serves as co-editor of Semantics & Pragmatics, and Dr. Arregi and Dr. Yu were co-directors of the 2015 LSA Summer Linguistic Institute.
