I’m a linguistics professor, meaning that there are about three things I do: think about how languages work, write about how languages work, and talk excitedly about how languages work. My contributions to DI tend to be attempts at squeezing in some time with a few of my other interests (psychology, genetics, geography, etc.). I’ve been contributing to the site since mid-2006, though I generally recommend ignoring that big gap in the middle.

Though originally from the Canadian side of the Pacific Northwest, I’ve spent most of my adult life near the Great Lakes. I’m currently based in central Michigan, which is inland but still gives me pretty good access to three out of five.
