This morning, Suzanne Wagner gave a short summary of her work on adolescents' and young adults' use of the -ing suffix. It was a challenge to say it all in just one minute! The Academic Minute is broadcast by WAMC Northeast Public Radio, and features a new one-minute talk by a researcher every weekday. Previous talks have included "Hate Speech and Free Speech", "Night Owls and Morning People", "Who Controls the Internet" and "Observing Embryonic Development", among many others.
