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.

New article published by Inma Garnes

Inma Garnes (ABD, Romance Languages) has recently had an article published in Diálogo de la Lengua. Her article, entitled "Del dominio espacial al dominio de la temporalidad: el caso del marcador conversacional venga", addresses the development of the interative marker venga in colloquial Peninsular Spanish. The abstract of her article is provided below. ¡Enhorabuena, Inma!
