Yale Grammatical Diversity Project: A project that explores the syntactic diversity of North American varieties of English. I have contributed webpages about two syntactic phenomena to this project:
- All the further. Example: Our car broke down, and Croton was all the further we got.
- Subject contact relatives. Example: There was a farmer had a dog.
CogSci Demos: A webpage of demos, developed with Suhas Arehalli, Hongru Zhu, and Tal Linzen, for teaching concepts important to computational cognitive science: https://cogscidemos.github.io/
