Goodness gracious, the language is changing! U of T linguists study 'g-word' usage in Ontario

As expressions go, “gosh” seems tame enough. But when Sali Tagliamonte was a teenager in summer camp, uttering even a more polite version of the word “God” landed her in trouble. 

These days, though, “Oh my God” has become so common that even a linguist like her rarely notices it – that is, until she began canvassing Ontario to document the dialects in 13 different communities, from tiny Lakefield to the city of Toronto.

A lost literature: U of T researcher shares the untold stories of Black people on the Canadian Prairies

At the age of 11, Karina Vernon found herself in Olds, Alta.

She had been born in Honduras, but moved with her parents and sister to Calgary. When her parents separated, her mother, who was white, moved her daughters to Olds, a small town about an hour’s drive north. Her father, who was Black, stayed in Calgary.

In Olds, Vernon made friends. She joined the Girl Guides. She played in the countryside. She even went to a horse-riding camp. “Typical,” she says.

U of T researcher teams up with Toronto biotech firm to tackle treatment-resistant lung cancer

Igor Stagljar, a professor at the University of Toronto’s Donnelly Centre for Cellular and Biomolecular Research, and Toronto-based biotechnology company Cyclica have launched a partnership to advance treatment of drug-resistant forms of lung cancer.

Together, they will identify small molecules that can inhibit the mutated epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR), a protein whose normal function is frequently disrupted in non-small cell lung cancer.
