Description:

The Department of French and Italian at The University of Texas at Austin will
offer merit-based graduate scholarships for outstanding students in French
Linguistics for fall 2010. The Julia Emerson Walther Scholars will receive
generous multi-year packages that will include highly competitive stipends,
teaching release, professional development support, and pre-dissertation funding
for extensive study in a francophone country.

There is currently a cohort of 17 graduate students in French and in Romance
linguistics in the Department of French and Italian and 8 full-time faculty
members: Carl Blyth, David Birdsong, Barbara E. Bullock, Bryan Donaldson, Knud
Lambrecht, Catherine Leger, Jean-Pierre Montreuil and Cinzia Russi.

Students in the French linguistics program gain a strong background in both
applied and theoretical linguistics. Main areas include phonetics, phonology,
morphology, syntax, semantics, and pragmatics. Subfields include historical
linguistics, sociolinguistics, bilingualism and language contact, dialectology,
French varieties, second language acquisition, and psycholinguistics.

The program, which aims to train future French linguists who intend to pursue a
career in academic research and teaching, benefits from strong links with the
Department of Linguistics, the Department of Anthropology, the Department of
Psychology, the College of Education, and the College of Communication. In
addition, the University of Texas at Austin has a student and faculty research
exchange with the Max Planck Institute for Psycholinguistics in Nijmegen,
Netherlands. Graduate students at The University of Texas at Austin can also
receive course credits from the International Max Planck Research School in
Nijmegen.
