Luiza Newlin Lukowicz
I am a second year Master's student in Linguistics at Eastern Michigan University. I was born and raised in the Kashuby region in northern Poland. Prior to joining the LINGUIST List, I did my studies in French (BA) and English (BA and MA) at Adam Mickiewicz University in Poznan, Poland.
I have a passion for sociolinguistics, phonetics and phonology. All of my undergraduate and graduate theses investigated dialectal variation in North America. So far, my research has focused on language variation, and the sociophonetic factors that affect the diffusion of sound change. I have also researched the disjunct between perception and production by looking at the auditory perception of the first three vowels involved in the Northern Cities Shift.
