||Hi! I am a fourth-year student of English at Belgrade University. Going to Philological High School awakened my interest in liguistics, which was further cemented by taking part in language competitions, winning prizes and meeting people with similar interests. At university I had the opportunity to take a number of linguistics courses, all of which I found really enjoyable. My recent research, unpublished and published, includes work on syntactic ambiguity, hedges in spoken English and the influence of technology on the development of linguistics. My primary areas of interest at the moment encompass syntax, discourse and grammar, corpus linguistics and sociocultural linguistics. I believe that the school will give me a wonderful opportunity to broaden my knowledge before starting an MA course next year.
