Linguistics Program's Andrew Byrd Discusses Proto-Indo-European Language with BBC Newsday

Just recently, the Linguistics Program's Andrew Byrd was interviewed by the BBC's Newsday radio series. The interview served to highlight Byrd's work studying the "Proto-Indo-European" language which dates back thousands of years. In the interview, Byrd gives listeners a glimpse of the language's history and a chance to hear the language given breath. 

A special thanks to the BBC World Service and The World Today as well as the College of Arts & Sciences and the Linguistics Program for making this podcast possible.

Book It - Recent Publications From the Department of English

It was an excellent summer for the Department of English as six faculty members published books in highly-regarded presses.

When Grammar Meets Programmer

UK linguistics Professor Gregory Stump co-authored "Morphological Typology: From Word to Paradigm," with computer science Professor Raphael Finkel.

Time Well Spent: Eli Edwards

English Professor Armando Prats said something that stuck in Elijah Edwards' head, "We are, in great measure, the living expression of our influences." It's a powerful sentiment that recent English graduate Edwards reflects in his own story.

Choose Your Own Adventure: Camille Westmont, Jacob Welch, and Jordan Neumann

University of Kentucky students Camille Westmont, Jacob Welch, and Jordan Neumann each have their own story but shared between them is the common thread of Anthropology. Within the major there are four subfields of study: archaeological, biological and cultural anthropology, taught in the Anthropology Department; and linguistics, taught in the Linguistics Program

This diversity gives the Department of Anthropology's students room to explore their varied interests and choose their own academic adventures. 
 
Such was the case with Camille Westmont and Jacob Welch, who found their calling in the sub-discipline of archeology and the Yucatan peninsula. Meanwhile, for Jordan Neumann, it was cultural anthropology and all things Tibet that he found himself drawn towards. 
 
Equally present in each of these students' stories is the Department of Anthropology's faculty and staff who are always ready and willing to help students find their way.
