What's a FARM challenge?

  • We invite some prominent linguists who developed influential analyses on a topic

  • We give them a set of data and a set of questions, and ask them to show how their theory accounts for them

  • We put them in an arena where they have to show the «superiority» of their theory in accounting for the data

  • We believe that real progress can be made if all focus on the same questions/data, rather that speaking about their own data set

  • Our aim is to have new data and to make some steps forward in linguistic theory

The FARM challenge is out, on our brand new website. Have a look!
