Language and Societies abstracts, vol. 5 (2013)
The students in the 2013 edition of my Language and Societies course are extremely proud to present abstracts of their research papers which they have been working on for the past three months, published at our course blog of the same name. As has become an annual tradition, I am sharing this work with a broader audience. I invite you to take a few minutes to look at the abstracts of interest to you, and to offer comments and questions, especially at this critical juncture over the next week, when the authors are making final revisions to their papers.   Thanks!
