Karolina and Samantha at LDLT5

Samantha and Karolina both presented papers last month at the bi-annual Language Documentation and Linguistic Theory conference (LDLT5) hosted at SOAS, University of London, 3rd-4th December 2016. Karolina’s paper was on “Two aspects of common ground management: information structure and epistemic meaning in Tena Kichwa”, which was one of the key topics of her PhD thesis, which was recently passed with minor corrections. Samantha presented (jointly with Miriam Weidl) a talk about methodology titled “Documentation of speakers’ linguistic practices in two sociolinguistically diverse settings in the Casamance, Senegal.” Both talks were warmly received with engaged discussions in the Q&A sessions.
