Research Description: Erin is a Ph.D. student in the Linguistics Program in the English Department of Duke University. Her teaching and research interests include Spanish-English contact in NC and morphosyntactic and intonational variation in ethnic dialects of English, including a variety of Hispanic English which is currently emerging in Durham (NC). She also works on acquisition of African American English (currently, with a project at the Frank Porter Child Development Institute at UNC-Chapel Hill), as well as sociolinguistic constructions of pain.
