This course is a hands on seminar on parsing minimalist grammars. Students will be exposed to cutting edge ideas on the relation between grammar and parser. While the emphasis is on understanding the nature of parsing, some attention will be paid both to connections with psycholinguistic data, and to implementation (whence the hands oniness) in Haskell.
