Richard Cameron, associate professor of Linguistics at University of Illinois-Chicago, gave a talk on February 31 as part of the MSU Linguistics colloquium series. Cameron's talk was titled "Three Approaches to Age and Aging in Sociolinguistics". He is a co-editor (with Robert Bayley and Ceil Lucas) of the recently published Oxford Handbook of Sociolinguistics. He is also well-known for his research on variation and change in Puerto-Rican Spanish and the English of Chicago-area children and pre-teens. It was a pleasure to have Richard at MSU!
