Virginia Dawson

Welcome

I am a fifth year graduate student in the department of linguistics at UC Berkeley. My research interests lie in semantics, syntax, and morphology. I approach questions in these areas primarily through the lens of Tiwa, a Tibeto-Burman language spoken in Assam, India.

My research interests include:

  • Disjunction
  • Epistemic indefinites
  • Mass/count distinction and number marking
  • Attitude reports
  • Case concord
  • Clitic placement
