Emily Jacklin presents her dissertation research at ULAB2018

Emily, Linguistics and Phonetics finalist, presents her research at the Undergraduate Linguistics Association of Great Britain 2018.

Emily Jacklin, one of LCS's Linguistics and Phonetics finalists has just returned from presenting her research “Мово рідне, слово рідне: Beloved Language, Beloved Word; Mothers’ Attitudes Toward Heritage Language Transmission: A Case Study of Ukrainian Immigrants in Bradford" at ULAB 2018 (Undergraduate Linguistics Association of Great Britain), hosted at the University of Edinburgh. She spent three amazing days listening to undergraduate research presentations on a variety of subjects from humanoid robot programming to Donald Trump's use of interruptions, and plenary talks including the SpeakUnique project by Simon King which works to create voices for those who have lost theirs due to Motor Neurone disease. She also attended panels on careers in linguistics and postgraduate study as well as presenting her dissertation to the conference and getting helpful feedback. 

Emily says “ULAB 2019 will be hosted by Queen Mary's University of London and should be in every linguistics students' calendar, as it provides an incredibly worthwhile experience, a chance to showcase work you are really proud of and meet fellow linguists across the UK”.
