I’m a Full Professor in the Department of Linguistics at the Université du Québec à Montréal (UQAM) and hold the Canada Research Chair (CRC) in Knowledge and Transmission of the Inuit Language. My areas of research include syntax and morphology, as well language documentation and revitalization. My work bears on the nature of polysynthesis in the Inuit language, Inuktut, 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:
I am a member of the Montreal Underdocumented Languages Linguistics Lab, of the Centre for Research on Brain, Language and Music – CRBLM (and its UQAM antenna, the CRLEC), of the Centre interuniversitaire d’études et de recherches autochtones (CIÉRA) (Montréal antenna), the Groupe de recherche interdisciplinaire sur les affirmations autochtones contemporaines (GRIAAC) et an affiliated member of the Institut nordique du Québec.
