David Pesetsky, the Ferrari P. Ward Professor of Modern Languages and Linguistics at MIT, has been elected a Fellow of the Linguistic Society of America. The LSA cites his "distinguished contributions to the disciplines." The induction ceremony for the 2013 class of Fellows will take place on Friday, January 4, 2013 at the LSA Annual Meeting in Boston, Massachusetts.
Speaking of the award, Dean Fitzgerald said "This is a tremendous honor, and a wonderful recognition of David's accomplishments in the field. We are very lucky to have him at MIT."
Professor Pesetsky, who is also a MacVicar Faculty Fellow (a group of MIT's finest teachers) is the fourth current MIT faculty member to be elected an LSA Fellow, following Morris Halle (2006), Noam Chomsky (2007), and Irene Heim (2012).
