Overview

What is she best known for?

The fields of study she is best known for:

  • Linguistics
  • Grammar
  • French

Shana Poplack focuses on Linguistics, Code-switching, Language transfer, Theoretical linguistics and Language contact. Her Linguistics and Grammar, Sentence, Syntax, Negation and Glossary investigations all form part of her Linguistics research activities. Her work carried out in the field of Sentence brings together such families of science as Code-mixing, Typology, Spanglish, Object and Tamil.

The various areas that Shana Poplack examines in her Code-switching study include Object language and Parallel computing. The concepts of her Language transfer study are interwoven with issues in Assimilation and Loanword. Her biological study deals with issues like Neuroscience of multilingualism, which deal with fields such as Equivalence, Discourse analysis, Case grammar, Language research and Picture language.

Her most cited work include:

  • “Sometimes I'll start a sentence in Spanish Y TERMINO EN ESPAÑOL”: Toward a typology of code-switching (1420 citations)
  • The social correlates and linguistic processes of lexical borrowing and assimilation (342 citations)
  • A formal grammar for code‐switching 1 (324 citations)

What are the main themes of her work throughout her whole career to date?

Her primary scientific interests are in Linguistics, Grammar, Code-switching, Language contact and Neuroscience of multilingualism. Shana Poplack applies her multidisciplinary studies on Linguistics and Variable in her research. The study incorporates disciplines such as Context, Morpheme and Inflection in addition to Grammar.

Her Code-switching research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Typology, Natural language and First language. Her Language contact research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Variation theory and Language transfer. Shana Poplack studied Neuroscience of multilingualism and Syntax that intersect with Formal grammar and Sentence.

She most often published in these fields:

  • Linguistics (68.75%)
  • Grammar (16.67%)
  • Code-switching (13.54%)

What were the highlights of her more recent work (between 2010-2021)?

In recent papers she was focusing on the following fields of study:

Her main research concerns Linguistics, Grammar, Speech community, Variation and Grammaticalization. Linguistics is frequently linked to Romance in her study. Much of her study explores Grammar relationship to Language change.

Her biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Determiner, Analogy and Communication. Her research integrates issues of Variation theory and Divergence in her study of Variation. Her work in Code-switching covers topics such as Morpheme which are related to areas like Language contact.

Between 2010 and 2021, her most popular works were:

  • Myths and facts about loanword development (63 citations)
  • Phrase-Final Prepositions in Quebec French: An Empirical Study of Contact, Code-Switching and Resistance to Convergence. (51 citations)
  • Bilingual Code-switching and Syntactic Theory (41 citations)

In her most recent research, the most cited papers focused on:

  • Linguistics
  • Grammar
  • French

Shana Poplack mostly deals with Linguistics, Grammar, Test, Code-switching and Language contact. Her study in Language change and Speech community is done as part of Linguistics. She has included themes like Phrase structure rules, Morpheme, Preposition stranding and First language in her Code-switching study.

Her Period research encompasses a variety of disciplines, including Loanword and Mythology. In her papers, Shana Poplack integrates diverse fields, such as State, Doctoral dissertation, Portuguese, Romance and Topicalization. Her Variable research spans across into subjects like Cryptographic nonce, Phenomenon, Function, Categorical variable and Empirical research.
