Ethan Wilcox defended his dissertation, titled Informative presupposition and accomodation (committee co-chaired by Roger Levy and Kate Davidson, with Gennaro Chierchia). Ethan's project involved extensive quantitative data collection on presupposition accommodation across wide varieties of contexts, and a theoretical proposal for what accounts for such variation in accommodation across triggers. Next year he'll be doing a postdoc at ETH in Zurich. Huge congratulations, Ethan!!
