William Cotter in Babel - The Language Magazine

William Cotter, joint PhD student in Anthropology and Linguistics at the University of Arizona recently contributed a feature article to the February 2016 issue of Babel - The Language Magazine. Babel highlights linguistic research in an accessible format for general audiences. Cotter's article uses Palestinian Arabic as a case study for examining the effect of political conflict on language change and stems from his ongoing research on Arabic dialect contact in the Gaza Strip and northern Jordan. The digital issue of the magazine is available from the Babel website.
