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!
