Posted on October 3, 2018 by

Manchet is delighted to announce two prize winners of the QStep Dissertation award. The award is for the best quantitative undergraduate dissertations across a number of participating degree courses: criminology, English language, linguistics, philosophy, political studies and international relations, social anthropology and sociology. For the academic year 2017/18, this award went to an English Language student (now an alumna), Ellie Whiteman. Ellie’s dissertation, supervised by Lauren, was on the Evolution of Pop Song Lyrics from the 60s – 00s, and used a corpus linguistics approach.

A runner up in LEL, and the winner of the divisional QStep award is Eva Huber, who has now graduated with a degree in English Language and Literature. Eva’s dissertation was on ‘A cross-linguistic view on emotion words: Applying a mixed-method approach to analyse near-synonymous adjectives and their usage in second language’. This dissertation was also supervised by Lauren.
