Live from Chicago! The Battle for Broca's area

As we write, Yosef is making his case for Broca's area supporting syntactic movement. Peter has already made his. I have to say, during the first part of his talk, Yosef was clearly ahead in points. But when he started talking the details of syntactic movement versus reflexive binding, we could feel the audience tuning out. We'll see if this two-hour session format actually results in scientific progress or just causes headaches.

It needs a boxing ring commentator for those of us not able to attend.
