Who am I and to what extent am I qualified to write about syntax and grammar?[edit]

Timothy John Osborne: I have a Ph.D. in German and linguistics, with a specialty in the theory of grammar. My particular interest is in dependency grammar and all aspects that feed into it. To check my qualifications to be a contributor, google "dependency grammar osborne". My publications in peer-reviewed journals will show up. These publications are also listed below.

I am particularly interested in the article on dependency grammar, and I am also working to improve other articles that touch on areas that are in some way related to dependency grammar and its understanding of syntax and the theory of grammar. I have significantly revised and/or added to the following articles:
