Congrats to UROP recipient Sam Rigor

Congratulations to sophomore Linguistics major Samantha (Sam) Rigor, who was awarded an Undergraduate Research Opportunities Program (UROP) grant to work on linguistics research in Fall 2021! Below is a brief description of the project she will be working on:

  • Sam Rigor: “Environments affecting the presence of coda /t/ and /d/ in Asian American speech”

In Fall 2021, Sam will conduct an acoustic and auditory study of Asian Americans’ interview speech in English to examine (1) the degree to which they produce coda /t/ and/or /d/ deletion, (2) the environments in which such deletion occurs, and (3) the social factors that relate to the occurrence of this deletion.
