Our News: Current-Cohort Presentation by Samuel Liff

Congratulations to Samuel Liff! Thanks to a Hearst Opportunities Fund Scholarship award (for CUNY baccalaureate students), Samuel Liff presented his NSF-ILLC funded project at the second International Conference on Yiddish Language Structures (YiLaS 2), held at the University of Düsseldorf, Germany. The conference focused on structural aspects of the Yiddish language system and included both theoretical and empirical presentations by experts in the linguistic analyses of Yiddish from the US and abroad. It was a great learning experience and success for Samuel: Many attendees showed interest in his project, gave constructive feedback, and expressed the wish to keep in touch.
