Dr Ricardo Napoleão de Souza gave a talk at the ALT 2022 in Austin

Dr Ricardo Napoleão de Souza gave a talk at the 14th International Conference of the Association for Linguistic Typology, in Austin, USA. The talk was the first time an assessment of the full dataset gathered for the GramAdapt project was presented, and it showcased work done by the entire research team.

The talk discussed how the sociolinguistic information obtained from the sociolinguistic questionnaire relates to the linguistic data pertaining to phonology, morphosyntax and lexicon. The presentation also emphasized how tools specifically developed for GramAdapt can help other researchers investigating hypotheses concerning language contact.  It was a happy coincidence that a number of our collaborators who filled out the sociolinguistic questionnaire were also present at the conference talk.
