National Science Foundation grant awarded to KU project

June 9, 2009


Additional federal stimulus dollars are flowing into Kansas University.

The National Science Foundation has awarded $284,641 in funding to a linguistics research project at KU, according to a release from U.S. Rep. Dennis Moore, D-Kan.

The project, led by Joan Sereno, associate professor of linguistics, will collect data documenting the range of variation that occurs in the production of speech, and how native and non-native speakers adjust to the variation.

The research could lead to new strategies for teaching second languages.
