Spanish: language contact, corpus linguistics, computational linguistics, sociolinguistics

Jacqueline Serigos is an Assistant Professor of Spanish Linguistics in the Department of Modern and Classical Languages. Her research focuses on various aspects of language contact – including loanwords, code-switching, and calques – and draws from multiple disciplines and linguistic subfields including corpus linguistics, computational linguistics, sociolinguistics, semantics, and statistics. She has several publications on Spanish and English contact using large datasets and develops computational methods, metrics and visualizations to analyze mixed language corpora.
