PhD Student, Hispanic Linguistics, Teaching Assistant of Spanish

My name is Graham Johnson and I'm currently a third-year PhD Student in Hispanic Linguistics at UGA. I also serve as an Instructor of Record in the Spanish program (SPAN 1001/1110/2001). My current research interests include: pragmatics and discourse analysis, discourse markers, pragmatic variation, and LGBTQIA+ discourse and identity, as well as sociolinguistics, language attitudes, historical linguistics, and phonetics/phonology. 


In 2017 I received a B.A. in Spanish from Berry College in Rome, Georgia. I then completed my M.A. in Hispanic Linguistics at UGA in 2019, where I wrote my thesis over reformulation markers in Peninsular Spanish discourse.
