Eugénie Henderson Prize for Ramsammy!

Posted on March 29, 2012 by

Manchet is sure you will want to join in congratulating recent PhD alum Michael Ramsammy, who has just won the Eugénie Henderson Prize of the British Association of Academic Phoneticians (BAAP).

The Eugénie Henderson Prize is awarded to the best paper presented by a non-member at the biennial BAAP Colloquium. The winner is selected by a majority vote of BAAP members. Michael received the honour for his talk on ‘Contextual weakening of /l/ in Spanish: An EPG study’, which he delivered this morning at the BAAP 2012 Colloquium held at the University of Leeds.

The distinction comes hot on the heels of Michael’s PhD viva, which took place on 19 December, and of news of publications in Romance linguistics 2010 (Benjamins, 2011) and in Journal of Linguistics (to appear).
