Day 2. Still pre-conference. I must confess that while taking notes today, I sincerely wondered to myself: how will I condense this much information in a way that its essence is not lost? So much was said; so much needs to be done. Oya grab your seat. @LagosStudies #lsa2019
The first panel was the Gender and Academy II. Panelists were Yetunde Zaid, Lynn Schler, Bamidele Wale-Oshinowo, Oyeronke Oyewunmi, Mojubaolu Olufunke Okome (@mojubaolu) and Taibat Lawanson (@TaibatLawanson) The first question shows that mentorship comes in various forms.
Who was your first mentor?:

"My first mentor was my Ph.D. supervisor. He was good @ treating students equally&that gave everyone a sense of confidence when starting out with their career. It distilled any competition that we might have&developed a sense of community.” Schler

The first #lsa2019 session I'm attending is "Advances in Categorial Grammar and its Application: In Memory of Richard T. Oehrle", with Richard Campbell, Nancy Frishberg, Robert Levine, and Michael J. Moortgat.
First talk: Michael Moortgat - Modes of composition. Linguistic expressions are multidimensional (phonology, syntax, semantics, ...) Composition in each of these dimensions behaves in a specific way, and Richard Oehrle's ideas revolve around composition across the dimensions.
One inspiration for Oehrle's work was Linear Logic (Girard 1987). LL refines traditional logic and makes it more powerful/expressive.
