Effective January 2016 I will be on leave at the University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa.
Please visit my UH site for more information about my work there.
As a documentary linguist my work focuses on the documentation and description of indigenous languages, especially the Dene (Athabascan) languages of Alaska and the non-Austronesian (Papuan) languages of eastern Indonesia. Most of these languages are in danger of disappearing, and their systematic documentation preserves endangered knowledge systems while also contributing to an understanding of the way human languages are structured.
For information about the UAF Linguistics Program please see the program website.
Alaska Native Language Archive is now located on the second floor of the Rasmuson Library.
