The Georgetown undergraduate research apprenticeship program (GULRAP) pairs undergraduate linguistics majors with PhD students carrying out linguistics research. This pairing provides graduate students with research advising and mentoring experience and gives undergrads the opportunity to participate in original linguistics research. Applications are solicited a few weeks before the start of each semester. Research mentor/mentee pairs for Fall 2018 are below:
Maddie Oakley with Katherine Russell and Ingrid Lillis on "Ultrasound tongue imaging and the L2 acquisition of French vowels" and "Acoustic analysis of tone and labials in Guébie"
