Yliana Rodríguez is a PhD candidate at Leiden University Centre for Linguistics (LUCL). During her BA and MA studies, she looked into the different ways in which languages borrow words from each other based on the idea that linguistic evidence, in the form of loanwords, can show the appearance of new ideas and things in the course of history of a society. For her doctoral research she is now focused on studying Spanish-English contact in the Falkland Islands (one of the few native English varieties of the Southern Hemisphere) with an innovative mixed methods approach.
