AD photoI am a linguist investigating issues of morphology, syntax, semantics, and information structure in Algonquian languages, especially Meskwaki (Fox), spoken in Iowa, and Plains Cree, spoken in Saskatchewan and Alberta. My work combines data from field elicitation with analysis of narrative texts; texts are particularly important for information structure relations such as topic and focus. See here for more about the corpus of early 20th century Meskwaki syllabic texts.
