I am a postdoctoral researcher at Göteborgs universitet in Gothenburg, Sweden, working with Elizabeth Coppock on ‘Most and more: Quantity superlatives across languages.’ Much of my research asks what understudied and underrepresented languages – especially Navajo (Diné Bizaad) – can tell us about crosslinguistic semantic variation, especially with respect to adjectival meaning, attitude reports, and comparative constructions.
Upcoming and recent:
- The University of Gothenburg will be hosting the Semantics of African, Asian, and Austronesian Languages (TripleA 4) June 9-11, 2017.
- I am teaching a course in semantics at the Navajo Language Academy during July 2017.
- I presented joint work entitled Navajo in the typology of Internally-headed Relatives (with Keir Moulton) at SALT 27, UMD-College Park, May 11-14, 2017.
- I presented joint work with Keir Moulton on nominalized assertional clauses in Korean at the workshop on Non-At-Issue Meaning and Information Structure at the University of Oslo, May 8-10, 2017.
- I gave an invited talk at the workshop ‘Polysemy and coercion of clause embedding predicates‘ at the 39th Annual Meeting of DGfS in Saarbrücken (March 8-10, 2017).
- Sentential and possibly subsentential modification: the ambiguity of Collins conjunctions. Joint work with Andrew Weir at NELS 47, UMass Amherst, October 16, 2016.
