Omer, Paulina, Rodrigo and Chris win grant

For "Whistling on Tiptoes: Investigating Rare Lexical Categories in Tz’utujil (Mayan)," The Jacobs Research Funds has awarded a grant to Omer Preminger, Paulina Lyskawa, Rodrigo Ranero and former Baggett Fellow Chris Baron. The grant will fund the group's fieldwork in Santiago Atitlan, Guatemala, this summer, when they will investigate the syntactic distribution and semantics of two lexical categories in the language: positionals and ideophones.
