Grammar and Variation Lab

In the 2021-2022 academic year I will be holding a joint lab meeting/reading group with Nadine Grimm. The topics will be broadly focused on the overlap between the subfields of Language Documentation and Description (LDD) and Language Variation and Change (LVC), including both methodology (the collection of empirical data, the many different methodologies encompassed under the name “fieldwork,” working with people and speech communities), the linguistic data that we and members of our labs are collecting, and methods of analysis. Undergraduate and graduate students who are interested in the intersection of the fields of LDD and LVC are welcome to attend.

Students currently attending include:

Jess Charest, Constanza Aceves Rodrigues, Scott Kirshner, Jillian Breithaupt, Kylie Pitt, Jamie Davis, and Camille Colby
