The fields of study Shana Poplack is best known for:

  • Linguistics
  • Grammar
  • Noun

Her Literature study frequently draws connections between adjacent fields such as Narrative, Indian English and Vernacular. Shana Poplack performs multidisciplinary study in Narrative and Literature in her work. Borrowing concepts from Ethnology, she weaves in ideas under Linguistics. With her scientific publications, her incorporates both Ethnology and Linguistics. Her work on Set (abstract data type) is being expanded to include thematically relevant topics such as Code (set theory). Her Set (abstract data type) research extends to the thematically linked field of Code (set theory). Shana Poplack carries out multidisciplinary research, doing studies in Syntax and Sentence. Shana Poplack connects Sentence with Syntax in her study. She integrates Programming language with Formal language in her study.

Her most cited work include:

  • Sometimes I’ll start a sentence in Spanish Y TERMINO EN ESPAÑOL: toward a typology of code-switching1 (1610 citations)
  • A formal grammar for code‐switching1 (371 citations)
  • The social correlates and linguistic processes of lexical borrowing and assimilation (367 citations)

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

Linguistics is connected with Code-switching, Grammar, Language contact and Creole language in her study. Programming language connects with themes related to Code (set theory) in her study. Her research on Code (set theory) frequently connects to adjacent areas such as Set (abstract data type). Her work in Set (abstract data type) is not limited to one particular discipline; it also encompasses Programming language. Her research on Noun often connects related areas such as Linguistics.

Shana Poplack most often published in these fields:

  • Linguistics (88.33%)
  • Programming language (25.00%)
  • Set (abstract data type) (18.33%)

What were the highlights of her more recent work (between 2014-2020)?

  • Linguistics (100.00%)
  • Artificial intelligence (57.14%)
  • Grammar (42.86%)

In recent works Shana Poplack was focusing on the following fields of study:

Her research on Programming language often connects related areas such as Extension (predicate logic) and Constant (computer programming). She incorporates Constant (computer programming) and Programming language in her studies. Her Geometry research is linked to Perspective (graphical) and Constraint (computer-aided design), among other subjects. She performs integrative study on Perspective (graphical) and Geometry in her works. She brings together Linguistics and Grammaticalization to produce work in her papers. Her Artificial intelligence study typically links adjacent topics like Selection (genetic algorithm). Selection (genetic algorithm) is closely attributed to Artificial intelligence in her study. She applies her multidisciplinary studies on Grammar and French in her research. Shana Poplack combines French and Grammar in her research.

Between 2014 and 2020, her most popular works were:

  • Searching for standard French: The construction and mining of the Recueil historique des grammaires du français (56 citations)
    1. Variation and grammaticalization in Romance: a cross-linguistic study of the subjunctive (33 citations)
  • Borrowing in the speech community (10 citations)
