The Linguistic Society of America recently announced the appointment of our own Professor Grant Goodall as the LSA’s liaison to the American Council on the Teaching of Foreign Languages (ACTFL).
Yesterday afternoon, our own Amanda Ritchart presented her research (joint with Amalia Arvaniti) on the use and realization of uptalk in Southern California English at the 166th Acoustical Society of America meeting. This work is profiled in the ASA’s press room, and has thus far received a fair amount of attention. You can listen to a podcast of an interview with Amanda at WBUR’s Here & Now, or read more about the study at KPBS (San Diego’s public radio station), BBC News, and in the Washington Post. The study also received this shout-out on the Linguistic Society of America website.
The September 2013 issue of Language contains four papers by current and former UCSD students and faculty. Featured authors are Laura Kertz, Farrell Ackerman & Rob Malouf, Raúl Aranovich, and Nayoung Kwon, Robert Kluender, Marta Kutas & Maria Polinsky.
