A great article on Marta’s research on Gibraltar appeared in the latest issue of UNI NOVA, the Research Magazine of the University of Basel. This small spot in the southern end of the Iberian Peninsula is well-known for its border situation and the mix of languages and cultures that characterize the everyday life of the population.

In her PhD project, Marta studies the importance of the local language variety known as Yanito for the young Gibraltarians and gives new and important insights into how code-switching varieties evolve in time, adapting to changing historical and political circumstances.
