I’m currently a student of teacher education at the University of Duisburg-Essen. My Bachelor thesis explored the extent to which Jennifer Lopez’s linguistic behavior has changed over the course of her career.
As a student assistant in the Sociolinguistics Lab, I mainly transcribe data from the Language Variation and Change across the Lifespan (LaVaLi) corpus in ELAN.
