Julianne Hammink



My name is Julianne Hammink. I grew up in Cleveland, Ohio, and have lived for many years in Texas. I began my coursework in SLAT in the fall of 2009. I plan to pursue research interests in language processes and language analysis, and possibly in cognitive science as well.

Before I came to the University of Arizona, I was a bilingual elementary school teacher in El Paso, Texas (Go Roadrunners!), where I became interested in how bilingual school-aged children acquire and use their first and second languages. I earned a master's degree in linguistics from the University of Texas at El Paso in 2006. My master's thesis examined verb incorporation in Guaraní causative constructions.

From 1992-1995 I served as a Peace Corps volunteer in Paraguay, where I worked as a beekeeping extensionist. Rohayhu Paraguay!
