Congrats to Joshua Hummel and Christa Rampley!

On Friday, two MA students in the Linguistics Program, Joshua Hummel and Christa Rampley, successfully defended their respective theses. These works (see titles below) both treated issues of lexical variation in contemporary American English.

At the upcoming Kentucky Foreign Languages Conference, there will be three presentations by current UGA Grad students. 

Congratulations to Rachel Kim!

Dot-Eum (Rachel) Kim (PhD student, Linguistics Program) successfully defended her first Qualifying Paper today. The paper, entitled "Do you want to be called women or lady?", focuses on "linguistic change with regard to lexical variation--namely, contemporary preference for the use of female reference terms in a variety of contexts." Her committee, including Drs. Chamorro and Renwick, and I were impressed with Rachel's observations concerning what turned out to be quite a complex topic.

Congratulations to her on this important achievement!

"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!
