Christina Kim in Linguistics and Philosophy

克里斯蒂娜·金博士系的讲师glish Language & Linguistics, has just published an article in the journal Linguistics and Philosophy, entitled ‘The Division of Labor in Explanations of Verb Phrase Ellipsis’, co authored with Jeffrey T Runner (University of Rochester, USA).

语言学和哲学是一个季度journal that focuses on issues related to structure and meaning in natural language, as addressed in the semantics, philosophy of language, pragmatics and related disciplines. The journal began 1977.
这article examines the phenomenon of Verb Phrase Ellipsis (VPE), a syntactic construction where the main verb is omitted from a sentence, as in the second sentence in: ‘Christina emailed Mike. Jeff will, too.’

Ellipsis, or the omission of a word, has been a central topic in theoretical syntax and semantics for decades, in part because theories of ellipsis must explain how a sentence containing ellipsis is nevertheless interpreted as though missing elements in the sentence are still present (the above sentence is understood as Jeff will email Mike, too’). Much of the debate has centred around the nature of the relationship between the ellipsis site (‘Jeff will, too’) and the antecedent clause (‘Christina emailed Mike’), which the meaning of the ellipsis seems to depend on. The article presents an empirical study of acceptability in Verb Phrase Ellipsis, and argues for a particular division of labour between grammatical requirements and discourse constraints.

Amy Li

小刀艾米·李(Amy Li)关于文学边界

Dr Xiaofan Amy Li, Lecturer in the Department of Comparative Literature, has contributed an essay to the newly published edited volume Minding Borders: Resilient Divisions in Literature, the Body and the Academy (Legenda, 2017).

这essay, entitled ‘When Do Different Literatures Become Comparable? The Vague Borders of Comparability and Incomparability’, explores the state of the discipline of Comparative Literature as a matter of crossing borders, and considers how far discussions, in the philosophy of comparison can revise critical thinking and methods in comparative literature.

这edited book Minding Borders, where the essay is published, traces the troubling and yet generative resilience of borders. It explores how borders define as well as exclude, protect as well as violate, and nurture some identities while negating others. A book launch event was held on the 27 November 2017 at St Anne’s College, Oxford, where Amy joined the discussion with the editors Matthew Reynolds, Adriana X. Jacobs, Ben Morgan, Mohamed-Salah Omri, and Nicola Gardini.

University Chamber Choir students work with leading British composer

Students in the University Chamber Choir had the opportunity to work with one of Britain’s leading composers in rehearsal on Tuesday 28 November, in preparation for singing in the University Carol Service in Canterbury Cathedral.

这choir was privileged to welcome Russell Hepplewhite to Colyer-Fergusson Hall, to work on Russell’s Star of the East. It can be a daunting prospect, performing a composer’s work in their presence, but the Choir rose to the occasion magnificently.

Hailed by the Evening Standard as one of the brightest young talents to have emerged in recent years, Russell’s award-winning work has been commissioned to critical acclaim by English Touring Opera, and his choral works are part of the recent Genesis Choral Library series launched by Banks Music Publications. His next work, ‘Moonfleet,’ is set to open at the Salisbury Playhouse in April.


new years dinner


这Student Learning Advisory Service would like to invite all International Students to a traditional New Year’s Dinner on Friday 5 January 2018 (during the winter vacation), 18.00-20.00 on the Canterbury campus. The venue will be confirmed nearer the time.

This is a great opportunity for you to enjoy an evening of traditional British food, to meet up with the other ‘stay on campus students’, to enjoy some music and break the monotony of the winter holiday. The dress code is smart casual, but feel free to dress up if you wish.
