Please join McLing in belatedly welcoming Martin Renard, who is visiting McGill during the Winter 2024 semester as a graduate research trainee.

Hi everyone! My name is Martin Renard, I am a 3rd-year PhD student at the University of Toronto. I work on Kanien’kéha (Mohawk), a Northern Iroquoian language spoken just outside of Montréal. I am currently starting my dissertation on documenting and activating for L2 acquisition the Kanien’kéha discourse patterns / information structure. I will be a GRT here for the semester, working with Jessica Coon, Wári McDonald (L1 speaker of Kanien’kéha), and their team on the Kanien’kéha language. I am originally from Lyon, France, so it is also very exciting to spend some time in a French-speaking part of Canada. I look forward to meeting you all!
