  1. What a brilliant idea! I am very grateful for the Little Miss Sunshine Award. I have never received such a personal sign of appreciation from students before.
    The blog is excellent too.
    Very gratifying to see Linguistics has moved on in such a good way over the past two years. You are all doing extremely well – let the world know about the excellent work in Linguistics and English Language at UWE Bristol!
    Best of luck to all students who are now graduating and to those who are still on the course.
