For this FUNetic Friday, we would like to direct your attention to the LSURC (Language Sciences Undergraduate Research Conference). This is a great place to network, and learn about research in Speech or Linguistics in general! You probably got an email about this, but did you know that some SFU students and professors will be presenting as well?

  • Trevor Bonneteau – First Language Effect on Learning an L2 in the name of Language Revitalization

Undergraduate students participating in the poster session:

  • Tabatha Mason – The Incorporation of English Noun Loanwords into Japanese Syntax
  • Breanne Esau – Are New Slang Terms Transcending Typical Lexical Distribution? An Analysis on the Syntactic Categorization of Yeet
  • Blair Chartrand, Annika Fong – Linguists as Mediators: how do we reconcile inequality of Canada’s Indigenous Languages in academia?

The LSURC opens Friday the 12th from 4:00pm – 10:00pm and continues on Saturday the 13th from 9:00am – 4:00pm. There will be Plenary Speaker sessions, undergraduate presentations and poster sessions, and more!

We hope to see you all there!
