About Me

I am Professor of Linguistics in the Department of Modern Languages and Linguistics and the Chair of the Department of Indigenous Studies.

I teach a variety of linguistics courses, including Intro to Linguistics, First Language Acquisition, Sociolinguistics, Historical Linguistics, Practical Phonetics and several seminar courses and independent study courses when my teaching schedule allows. I also teach Structure of Blackfoot and other Blackfoot-related courses for the Department of Indigenous Studies.

My research interests are mainly in Documentary Linguistics, Language Revitalization, Linguistic Typology, Historical Linguistics, Functional Discourse Grammar and other non-generative approaches to grammar, and involve a number of languages including Irish, Dutch, English and Blackfoot.

My current work is mainly in Blackfoot language documentation and revitalization. My recent SSHRC-funded project "Blackfoot Linguistic Resources and Digital Dictionary" can be viewed at https://www.blackfoot.atlas-ling.ca. I am currently involved in a collaborative project with the Peigan Board Of Education to explore ways to support their language revitalization work. As part of this project we received a SSHRC Connection grant to organize the 25th Stabilizing Indigenous Languages Symposium in June 2018. See www.sils2018.ca for more information. The Proceedings from this symposium will be published by Athabasca University Press in 2020.

I am currently not accepting graduate students.
