Grant Armstrong - Spanish Linguistics

I am an assistant professor of Spanish Linguistics at the University of Wisconsin - Madison. My general areas of specialization are morphology, syntax and semantics (the structure and interpretation of words and sentences). More specific interests within these general areas include: lexical semantic verb classes (activities, change of state, etc.), transitivity, applicatives, the uses of the pronominal clitic 'se', the structure and interpretation of participles, and types of resultative secondary predication. I am also interested in the description, teaching and analysis of Yucatec Maya.
