Mohammad Al Jutaily at ASAL this weekend

Mohammad Al Jutaily, Doctoral Student in Linguistics, will be heading to the 30th Annual Symposium on Arabic Linguistics set to be held this weekend at Stony Brook University. His poster, entitled "A sociophonetic study of fricative variation in Gulf Pidgin Arabic", examines patterns in the production of marked consonant segments of Arabic from a corpus of speakers of Gulf Pidgin Arabic (see full abstract below). Best of luck, Mohammad!

Congratulations to Joey Stanley!

Congratulations to Joey Stanley who just received a UGA Dean's Award in Arts and Humanities to fund his project entitled "Identity and the Founders Effect in Longview, Washington." Joey will use this award to begin his dissertation research regarding language shift in the Northwestern United States.

Secondly, Joey is co-author, along with Janis Nuckolls, Elizabeth Nielson and Roseanna Hopper, on an article that was recently published in the International Journal of American Linguistics (see full citation below). 

Congratulations to Inma Garnes!

I am very pleased to announce that doctoral student Inma Garnes successfully defended her dissertation yesterday. In the dissertation, entitled Marcadores conversacionales como origen de intensificadores en el español peninsular: la gramaticalización de venga, Inma provides a detailed account of the evolution and current usage of the erstwhile verbal item venga and its uses as a quantifier and intensifier. The committee and I were impressed with the depth of her analysis and the range of different topics she's addressed in this research.
