Languages & Linguistics was first judged as one category in The Undergraduate Awards in 2010.
The category is designed to incorporate students of all Languages and Linguistics disciplines, including Phonetics, Phonology, Sociolinguistics, Syntax and Pedagogy and more. Entries for this category must be within the 5,000-word limit and have received a 2.1/A grade.
Last year, Mary Wang from Western University was the Global Winner of the category with her paper titled “Does Developmental Social Pragmatic Intervention for Children With Autism Influence Parent Language Use?“. The judges praise the paper as “well written and carefully argued”, further commented that “it had all the elements that are necessary for a successful research article at any level”.
Speaking about her achievement, Mary commented
You can also listen to an interview with Mary on ‘Ontario Morning’, during which she explained the inspiration behind her research paper.
With the submission deadline getting closer, we are very excited to receive all the inventive research in the fields of Languages & Linguistics from undergraduate students from around the globe.
