Fernando Melero GarciaMany Graduate and new PhD students understand the importance of publishing scholarly articles, but often times, they face external pressures that do not allow them to produce scholarly work. The most common are graduate coursework, teaching courses & comprehensive exams.   This of course is not the case for Fernando Melero García, a graduate student in the Hispanic Linguistics Program in the Dept. of Spanish & Portuguese, he has been able to overcome these obstacles with the help of his Faculty mentor Prof. File-Muriel.  Fernando's research article titled "Análisis acústico de la vibrante múltiple en el español de Valencia (España)" was recently published in the Journal Studies in Hispanic and Lusophone Linguistics.  He stated, "the acceptance of my paper on the acoustic analysis of Spanish trills was the result of hard work and endless support from Professor Richard J. File-Muriel. I really have no words to express my gratitude to him, and, needless to say, I couldn’t have ever carried out this project without his help. Not only is he an excellent professor, but also an incredibly generous person and a true role model for me, both personally and professionally."
