This user has been identified as an Awesome Wikipedian and was awarded his or her own day.


I am an associate professor of Linguistics at a major U.S. university. I have taught Linguistics in the U.S. and English Linguistics in Ukraine.

My Real Name[edit]

I formerly had my real name here in case people wanted to contact me off-Wiki for a serious discussion about areas I have an interest in. Sadly, it was posted on an outside discussion forum as part of an attempt to solicit meat puppets in Wikipedia and I have felt it best to remove it. If something I have written here makes you curious about the field I work in, then send me an email through Wikipedia.
