Linguistics. My thesis looked at how people who speak more than one language will sometimes use words from one language in order to get at specific nuances and shades of meaning that don't translate well. I took 25 hours of video and audio recordings of people from Alberta, Canada and from Maine in the US talking in French and English, found the most common English words that they used out of all of that, and looked at how and when they were using them to see if they had any special meanings or uses for them!

An interesting study, nytquill.  Congratulations once again and good luck with your PhD.
