LSA and Reductos

The last week has been utterly crazy driving up and down California visiting friends. I spent last weekend at the Linguistics Society of America conference, where I randomly ran into my TA from the first linguistics class I ever took back seven years ago at Berkeley. One of the sessions spurned a fairly good brainstorm for my visual grammar project. Now that I'm in a psychology program I was left thinking only "now how can I do this in an experiment?" I think I have a good idea for how, but we'll see what my profs think when I get back to Boston.

In other news, Grant Thomas has taken the "Reducto" graphic poem type proposed in my Comixpedia article and is applying it in a series of poems. It's fun to see someone playing with the ideas actively, so go check it out!
