i’m deep into the “special” life experience that is earning a master’s degree and the time has come for crowd participation. we’ve finally at the part of the year where we’re working exclusively on our final major project, which is a relief and endless uncertainty at the same time. i’m conducting a survey on my topic/question, so please head over to the link and fill it out. only takes 10-15 minutes.
my project centers around african american vernacular english (aave) / black english / whatever you may call it and how it comes across when spoken. hopefully i’ll have time to go in-depth about my research and findings in the future (it’s been fascinating to say the least), but that time is not right now as i’m working on a deadline for tomorrow before i pass out from exhaustion. for now, you can follow along at my research blog: nuritypes.tumblr.com.
