Participants explore how language works on many levels in order to develop greater linguistic awareness and the ability to think critically about language. This summer 4 sections of SLIYS were offered, two of SLIYS 1 and two of SLIYS 2. Along with colleagues from other subfields of linguistics, I was a guest speaker.

Buckeye Language Network DIY Citizen Science

The Language Pod is trying out a new kind of citizen science where the public can help us design, run, and analyze a whole language science experiment from start to finish.
