Class Project Leads to New Research on Spanish in North Carolina
For professor Jim Michnowicz and his students, what started as a class experiment is now producing intriguing research findings that will be published in a new book on language diversity. Their work, which provides further insight into the evolution of Spanish in North Carolina, also serves as a clear example of the kind of purposeful, community-based research that can be carried out by undergraduates.
Why Linguistics at NC State?
Studying language in North Carolina is like dying and going to Dialect Heaven.
- Walt Wolfram
