I’m a professor in the Department of Linguistics at the Université du Québec à Montréal (UQAM). My areas of interests include syntax and morphology, as well language documentation and revitalization. My research bears on the the nature of polysynthesis in the Inuit language, particularly in Inuktitut and Inuinnaqtun dialect areas, and includes the study of lexical and functional categories, noun incorporation, verbal agreement, and the linearization and formation of words. Some of my research questions include:
If you are considering pursuing an MA or a PhD in Linguistics with a focus in syntax or morphology, or if you are interested in a project on Inuktitut or another Inuit dialect, feel free to contact me.
If you’re a native speaker of Inuktitut or another Inuit dialect living in Montreal and would like to participate in research on your language, I invite you to contact me.
