Cynthia presents paper at IPrA in Brussels

The 18th conference of the International Pragmatics Association (IPrA) was held in Brussels, Belgium, from July 9-14, and our doctoral candidate Cynthia Boo was in attendance to present a paper! Cynthia spoke in the Discourse and disfluencies in cognitive and speech disorders session, sharing her research entitled “Non-Autistic and Autistic children: Why should I say ‘um’ if I’m not talking to anybody?”

We are so proud to have had the CLL represented at IPrA by Cynthia. Congratulations on a great talk!

Cynthia gives her IPrA talk on non-Autistic and Autistic children’s use of ‘um’ in different discourse contexts.
