The Workshop on Innovations in Cantonese Linguistics, the first North American conference devoted to Cantonese Linguistics, was held at The Ohio State University in Columbus, OH. ROP299 students, Tiffany Chung and Josephine Tong, along with Naomi had the opportunity to present their research on “Classifier variation and change in Toronto Heritage Cantonese”; and took part in the plentiful sessions as well as workshops throughout the weekends of March 16th to 17th, 2012.

Aside from all the linguistics substance, we have also managed to tour around the campus, eat at a Cuban café, and travel around town.
