|I am PhD student at the University of Delaware in the Department of Linguistics
and Cognitive Science.
My main focus is the syntax and semantic interface. I received an
NSF dissertation grant to study Cusco Quechua. My dissertation is
on a previously unrecognized linguistic category: Impulsatives.
In addition to Cusco Quechua, my dissertation also covers unrelated
languages: Albanian, Bulgarian, and Finnish.
