Riley VanMeter presents his latest research at ALC16

Congratulations to our own Riley VanMeter for a successful conference presentation at this year’s Oct. 21-22 Arizona Linguistics Circle Conference at the University of Arizona! He presented a recent work titled “Sociolinguistic Variation of Se Lo(s) in Mexican Spanish: A Corpus-Based Approach to Selosísmo in Flux.” On the experience of presenting, he had the following to say:

“Presenting at The University of Arizona was a very rewarding experience. After so many virtual conferences, it was great to finally present in person and be able to meet people with similar interests and exchange feedback on each other’s work. It was amazing to see the diversity of topics being researched across linguistics and it’s super inspiring to see such important work being done in the field. I certainly left the conference with a renewed sense of purpose in my research.”

Riley also presented last spring at the 89th Southeastern Conference on Linguistics (SECOL) alongside Dr. O’Rourke, Dr. Cipria, Ronny Azuaje, and Ehab Alafifi on “El paisaje lingüístico de Alabama: A preview of a changing linguistic landscape in Tuscaloosa.”
