Congratulations to Nicole! Glad to learn that Matt enjoyed both McGill & Montreal. Indeed, when I caught sight of "McGill" in the subject heading, I thought for a moment it was an email from my daughter. She's taking up a lectureship there this fall - but in philosophy, not linguistics. My wife & I are hoping we might get over to Montreal for a few days in October - I've no doubt I shall see McGill sometime. Anyway - all the best to Nicole.
