Education: Linguistics with emphasis in Sociolinguistics and Historical Linguistics Ph.D., Purdue University

Dr. Friedrich is a sociolinguist whose main research interests are World Englishes and the spread of English throughout the world (which includes the politics of English and its interaction with social and economic phenomena). Her curiosity about languages and cultures has led her to become involved in cross-cultural examinations especially in how national culture and language impact business making and organizational practices. Dr. Friedrich is also attracted to writing, particularly ESL, and the teaching of writing across different fields as well as investigating methodological aspects of research designs for the humanities. She has published articles in journals such as World Englishes (where she has also been a guest editor), International Journal of Applied Linguistics, and English Today. Originally from Brazil, Dr. Friedrich has lived in Argentina, and in the Midwest.
