Rodrigo, Paulina and Polina win research grants

Congratulations to Polina, Paulina, Rodrigo and undergraduate Marisa Fried, who have (again) won support from The Jacobs Research Funds. Polina's project is work with collaborator Irine Burukina, from Eötvös Loránd University Budapest (one of several universities named after a scientist who also provides the name of a lunar crater), on "Comparative analysis of nominal phrases in Kaqchikel and K’iche," which continues a project begun at the Guatemala Field Station. Also related to research from the field station is Paulina, Rodrigo and Marisa's project on "Three phonological puzzles in Santiago Tz'utujil," which concerns sibilant harmony, vowel epenthesis and syncope.
