About Priscilla Shin
Priscilla Shin is a graduate student in the joint Anthropology and Linguistics (ANLI) PhD program. Her current interests are in examining variation in Singapore English and how language variation and other semiotic practices (i.e., social practices, education, peer groups, etc.) are used to negotiate "proper" identities. She is also interested in investigating how macro-level beliefs and practices (such as language ideology) trickle into micro-level linguistic processes. In this respect, she works on the production and perception of voice onset timing (VOT) in Singapore English. She is currently doing her dissertation fieldwork in Singapore.
