Elizabeth Ann Hepford

Elizabeth Hepford is an applied linguist whose research includes second language development, civics education for English learners (ELs), and how multilingualism is used as a marketing tool. Her current research in second language development centers on longitudinal case studies with statistical analyses of the development of language complexity, grammatical accuracy, vocabulary, and fluency under the theoretical framework of complex dynamic systems theory. In addition, she is currently analyzing how ELs misunderstand the Miranda Warnings and developing teaching techniques for increasing their understanding. She has taught courses for English as a foreign language, English as a second language, TESOL, applied linguistics, and intercultural communication at universities in the United States, Albania, and Mexico. She also served as a Peace Corps volunteer in Russia and as an English Language Fellow in Albania where she conducted teacher training seminars, led an in-service English as a foreign language teaching internship, and taught English language courses in the schools and the community.
