Wesley dos Santos

I am a third year doctorate student in Linguistics at the Department of Linguistics in UC Berkeley, where I also co-organize Fieldwork Forum since 2019.

Broadly speaking , my main interests revolve around morphosyntax, language documentation and revitalization of Amazonia languages. More specifically, I work on Agreement, Long Head Movement, Information Structure, Language Documentation and Development of Literacy Materials based on data collected through fieldwork with the help of speakers from Kawahiva communities (Tupí-Guarani) living in Central-Western Brazil since 2017. More information can be found in my CV.

When I am not doing Linguistics, I watch soccer, movies, and eat a lot.

Before coming to Berkeley, I got my BA in Letters/ Portuguese from the Federal University of Goiás (UFG, 2012-2015), and a Master's degree from the State University of Campinas (UNICAMP, 2016-2018). My master's dissertation was about a typology of causatives in Panoan languages.
