The Department of Linguistics at Memorial University, Newfoundland, invites applications for graduate admission for Fall 2014 from qualified students for the M.A. (with thesis) degree. Students will undertake thesis research within context of the Chisasibi Child Language Acquisition Study (CCLAS), a longitudinal first language acquisition study of (East) Cree. Familiarity with the structure of an Algonquian language, or of another polysynthetic language of the Americas, is highly desirable. Some knowledge of the theories of first language acquisition would be an asset but is not required. Competitive funding is available. Research opportunities are available in the areas of phonetics/phonology and morphology/syntax.
For details of the CCLAS project please see: http://www.mun.ca/cclas.
