This week I’m talking to Calum Fabb. Callum wrote his paper in 2019 entitled “Investigating the effect of semantic relatedness on affective priming in multilingual individuals.”

Calum was the regional winner for Ireland under the linguistics category with this paper at the Undergraduate awards in 2019. Calum studied French and Hispanic Studies at TCD and is currently taking a Master’s there too.

Calum’s paper deals with the mind and how we process language, but specifically deals with multilingualism. We also talk about gender bias in research in general as well as the lack of research in multilingualism, and kind of the limitations of certain fields of research more generally.
