UGA folks in Utah

*A handful of UGA graduate students descended upon Salt Lake City, Utah this past weekend to attend the meetings of the Linguistic Society of America and the American Dialects Society. Among this group were two of my advisees, Joey Stanley and Kyle Vanderneit, who presented together yesterday at a session on Utah English.

Shannon Rodríguez completes first QP!

Shannon Rodríguez (PhD, Linguistics) successfully completed/defended her first qualifying paper on Tuesday, August 29th. Her paper, entitled "Transitive andar: an emerging verb of alienable possession", discusses the transitive use of andar in varieties of Latin American Spanish, as in Es el maje que, aunque ande ropa de marca, galán se le mira, al desnudo, lo maje. (Honduras, Corpus del Español). Her committee (including Dr. Margaret Renwick and Dr. Paula Mellom) and I were  impressed with Shannon's work.
