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.

Abstract:

Kudos all around!

In the midst of trying to draft a number of individual posts related to student achievements during the past several weeks, I have decided to provide a list of pending announcements here in one message. My apologies to anyone who feels slighted by a group recognition.

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.
