About Me

This is Mir Ushmum Alam from Bangladesh. I completed my graduation and post-graduation in Linguistics from the University of Dhaka -the most prestigious institution in Bangladesh. I have also earned an MS degree in Clinical Linguistics. My M.Phil. research is about ‘Correlating Social Stratification and Bengali Phonology.’ My boundless love for linguistics grabs me here at the University of Calgary. My research interest includes phonology, clinical linguistics, psycholinguistics, and sociolinguistics. I speak one of the sweetest languages of the world: Bengali. To build up a ‘language lab’ in Bangladesh is one of my dreams.

I am a fun-loving extrovert girl. I love singing and dancing. I love to travel and explore new things. But nowadays ‘sleeping’ is one of my favorite leisure activities
