About Me

I am Associate Professor of Linguistics in the Department of Modern Languages and Linguistics. 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 current 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 SSHRC-funded project Blackfoot Linguistic Resources and Digital Dictionary can be viewed at
