About this event

An ‘old-school’ session, exercising our minds on a basic feature of sequence organisation - which always turns out to be more testing than it sounds, but all the more revealing  for it.  The last session (on TCUs) was illuminating and challenging in equal measure; this time we might go for action formation & ascription. Levinson’s deceptively breezy account in the Handbook will be helpful reading.
