20th Bilingual Workshop on Theoretical Linguistics

The Bilingual Workshop on Theoretical Linguistics was held at New College, University of Toronto on November 24-25th, 2017, organized by Sophia Bello and Yves Roberge. It was the 20th BWTL (over 21 years), and it is fitting that it is here because the first BWTL was also held at University of Toronto. The program included speakers from U. of T., York, Western, and Wilfred Laurier. José Camacho (Rutgers University) gave a keynote presentation on proper names. The U. of T. speakers included Julianne Doner, Elan Dresher, Jean-François Juneau, Kinza Mahoon, and Andrew Peters. One speaker was unable to attend, so Diane Massam and Yves Roberge gave a last minute replacement talk. The conference followed its traditional format, with short talks and longer discussions. A great time was had by all!
