Carolin Schneider has been awarded the Wissenschaftspreis by the Stadtparkasse Essen

Exciting news: Carolin Schneider has been awarded the Wissenschaftspreis by the Stadtparkasse Essen in November. The award marks the culmination of her research project, Bili-AD, exploring the bilingual communication of individuals with Alzheimer's dementia. The Bili-AD project investigated how speakers in different stages of Alzheimer's dementia leverage their bilingual linguistic resources. The outcomes are not only academically significant but also hold practical implications for understanding and supporting individuals facing the challenges of Alzheimer's. Fresh of the press, the book provides insights into the interplay of (bilingual) communication and Alzheimer’s and introduces 10 individuals and their linguistic choices:

For those eager to delve into the topic, this open access article is a wonderful opportunity to explore the research findings and gain a first understanding of the subject matter:
