Enfield submits proposal to European Research Council for Starting Grant on “Human Sociality and Systems of Language Use”. One of the three proposed subprojects is to compare how requests and similar actions are done across languages and cultures.
ERC Starting Grant (€2m) “Human Sociality and Systems of Language Use” (HSSLU) awarded to Enfield.
ERC project begins, hosted by the Max Planck Society, embedded within the Language and Cognition Group at the Max Planck Institute for Psycholinguistics, the Netherlands.
ERC project participates in joint Language and Cognition Group and CLIC workshop “Action Ascription in Social Interaction Workshop”, UCLA.
Workshop on Action Ascription in Conversation including Session on Recruitments in HSSLU huddle: one-week intensive data survey and analysis on recruitments (with Paul Drew as invited participant).
