"Comparing hesitation markers in Sanjuanero Spanish" by Lamar A. Graham

The latest issue of the journal Diálogo de la Lengua: Revista de investigación en filología y lingüística includes an article by one of my advisees, Lamar A. Graham (ABD, Romance Languages), entitled "Comparing hesitation markers in Sanjuanero Spanish."  This work explores the use of hesitation markers (e.g., eh, este, hombre, bueno) in a corpus of spoken Spanish from San Juan de Puerto Rico. The abstract is copied below. Congratulations to Lamar on this accomplishment!
