We were fortunate to have Chris Westbury (personal website / lab website) from the University of Alberta visit Washington University this week. Chris and I are co-authors on a paper but haven't had the chance to meet until now. Chris has done elegant and interesting work on lexical semantics, most recently on looking at the role of emotional attributes in the context of corpus analyses (i.e. semantic associations derived from co-occurrance measures like LSA). It was great to have Chris here, and I'm looking forward to his next visit!
