self-description Being a deeply sarcastic person, I was pleasantly surprised to learn, in one of my first year classes, that there was a field that managed to encompass sarcasm: Pragmatics. Though I have taken more than my fair share of syntax and phonology related classes, I believe I will always prefer to study sentences' and speakers' meanings, rather than bland formal aspects of language. I have for the last year been completing a thesis on experimental Pragmatics as part of my undergraduate degree in Linguistics and Psychology. I hope to attend the egg in order to keep studying linguistics while at the same time maintaining some semblance of "taking a year off" to evaluate my goals and intentions. I've also always been intrigued by photos I've seen of the Czech republic.
