Congratulations to the stalwart undergraduate researchers who graduated this May! Pictured here from left to right are Jessie Hong, Kathryn VerPlanck, Alyssa Webster and Heidi Little. Collectively, these students are responsible for 4 UURAF posters, 3 international conference presentations, 1 conference proceedings chapter and an invited chapter. They have worked on general extenders, quotatives, intensifiers, sound change, outreach in schools and more. We're going to miss them!!
Also celebrating this month was Ashley Hesson (r), who walked in the May graduate commencement, where she was 'hooded' by her advisor Suzanne Wagner (l). Ashley will defend her doctoral dissertation in mid-June.
