Georgetown Department of Linguistics is seeking participants to interview for the Language and Communication in the Washington, DC, Metropolitan Area database (LCDC). The database aims to document language usage and communication practices within the DC metro area.
Alicia Martinez, organizer of the study, describes her research goals below.
I would like to focus on the Native American/Indigenous population living in the DC Metro area in an effort to acknowledge their contribution to overall linguistic practices taking place. My research objective is to contribute to an effort to learn about life in the Washington D.C. area. We are interested in how contemporary life in D.C. compares with other places and earlier times. More specifically, we are interested in people’s every experiences, especially how they communicate and use language with one another. The study will contribute to general knowledge of how people communicate with one another in large cities and their surrounding areas.
If you are interested, please contact Alicia Martinez at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information!
