A big congratulations to our MA student, Sara Johansson, winner of the 2012 Canadian Linguistic Association Student Paper Competition for her paper “Acquiring Northern East Cree verbal morphology: Evidence from inchoative verbs”.
France Martineau, president of CLA, relayed the following to Sara:
"This is a really wonderful achievement. Your research was both original and ambitious, with your paper being characterized by outstanding treatment of interesting Northern East Cree data, methodological rigour, solid knowledge of issues in theoretical linguistics and language acquisition, and a thorough understanding of the relationship between your data and theory. Your presentation was strikingly articulate and matched by the quality of your handout. Congratulations!"
