self-descriptionI took classes both in English phonology and syntax as an undergraduate student, and I became interested in English phonology, especially in the behaviour of the liquids. I wrote my bachelor's thesis on /r/ and R Influenced vowels, and I took a diachronic perspective. I wrote about the behaviour of /l/ in different dialects of English for the Student's National Scholarly Conference (conference for Hungarian students in higher education), and now I work on comparing the two sounds. I am interested to find out why the two liquids behave in a rather similar manner, and what framework can deal with them. I believe that for this I need to learn more about the syllables, and EGG offers classes on this topic, and it is uncertain whether my university will offer courses on that topic. Beside those courses I would also like to broaden my horizon and get to know other fields and frameworks. I would also like to meet other people who do linguistics, and with whom we can discuss our ideas in a more informal manner.
