Announcement

It is a pleasure to announce that Professor Annie Tremblay has been awarded an appointment as a Fellow at the Center for Advanced Studies next year. This award releases her from teaching for one semester so that she can pursue her project "Segmenting Speech into Words: What Eye Movements Can Tell Us about Foreign-Language Learning." Her use of eye-tracking technology rather than conventional auditory techniques advances our understanding of how second-language learners use liaison consonants in word-level processing and confirms the importance of associative learning in second-language acquisition.
This competitive, prestigious award brings honor to the Department, the School of Literatures, Cultures and Linguistics, and the College.

Head
