Seven of our intrepid undergraduate students will be presenting short talks on their research at the annual Undergraduate Linguistics Association of Britain (ULAB) conference at York St John’s University this coming weekend!

ULAB 2015 boasts a number of distinguished plenary speakers and participants from all over the UK. All of LEL’s attendees happen to be presenting on the cutting-edge independent research they did for Language Change Across the Lifespan (LELA30981) last semester. The lineup is as follows:

  • Siqi Liu & Xinyun Lei: Has Barack Obama Changed his Language in Later Life?: A Case Study on ing/in Variables and MOUTH Vowel
  • Ying Zhou & Yaorui Chen: Lifespan Change in /r/-Vocalization and /t/-Flapping: Can imitation trigger lifespan change?
  • Lisa Perrett & Emma Fieldhouse: An investigation into the Lifespan Change of Madonna Ciccone 1984 – 2012
  • Wen Cai: Social Mobility, Geographical Relocation and Linguistic Change across Lifespan

Congratulations to these budding scholars on their achievement!
