self-descriptionDear EGG team, In 2012 I gained my master's degree in English and German Language and Literature from the University of Rijeka, Croatia. My thesis focused on pronoun interpretation in Croatian in people with Down syndrome and typically developing children. The experimental study I designed and conducted for the purposes of my thesis served as a basis for the poster I presented at last year's Boston University Conference on Language Development, where I also acted as an alternate for oral presentations. At the moment, I am continuing to investigate pronoun interpretation in Croatian in typically developing monolingual children with my former supervisor Dr. Tihana Kras (a paper based on preliminary results of this research has been accepted for presentation at this year’s conference Generative Approaches to Language Acquisition) and I teach English as a part-time job in a primary school in my hometown, Delnice. I am eager to broaden my knowledge, share experiences and meet other young language enthusiasts. I am looking forward to attending classes at EGG, especially those related to pronouns, which would unquestionably give me some new perspectives. Therefore I hope that you will allow me to participate and thereby contribute to my professional growth and experience. Yours sincerely, Tanja Stipec
