WILL M. SCIENCE RESEARCH PAPER
Editor's note: William M. ('15) wrote this scientific article summarizing his findings from an experiment conducted as a part of his science research class.
Author's Note: This paper describes the results of the experiment I carried out while interning at the lab of Professor Alec Marantz at NYU. I started planning this experiment during my junior school year and finished it during the following summer. The results suggest that texting acronyms are processed in the brain as a grammatical transformation of only one of their components rather than as a set of all their components.
