Lily Kwok

I am a second year Ph.D. Linguistics student at the University of Connecticut.

I am also a trainee in the Neurobiology of Language program (formerly the NSF-funded IGERT on Language Plasticity), and a member of Diane Lillo-Martin's Sign Linguistics and Language Acquisition Laboratory.

I am primarily interested in syntax, sign linguistics, language documentation, and language acquisition, with particular focus on languages of the Caribbean region.

I have previously done work on Trinidad and Tobago Sign Language (TTSL) and South Rupununi Sign Language, under the University of the West Indies, St. Augustine, where I also completed my B.A. in Literatures in English and Linguistics.

Current project: The TMA system of TTSL.

Recent project: The imperative in ASL.
