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.
