Title of Project:
Tonogensis in Korean 
Advisor: Anya Lunden
Honors Department: Linguistics

Recent research suggests that the Korean may in fact be developing a tonal system. I will be investigating the most recent current findings in this field, and interpreting my own research to better understand whether it supports the idea of tonal development in Korean.

Hometown: Roanoke, Virginia

Fun Fact: I started college thinking I’d be a physics major- times have changed! I’m trying to study Korean as I also study how the language works.
