Virginia Dawson

Welcome

I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Linguistics at Western Washington University. My research interests lie in semantics, pragmatics, morphology and syntax. 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 and indefinites

  • Mass/count distinction and number marking

  • Attitude reports

  • Case concord

  • Morpheme reordering and post-syntactic movement
