I started this blog when I was a graduate student at the University of Oregon in the department of linguistics. Since then, I received my MA in Linguistics and and now teaching in the Computer Information Technology department at Lane Community College. Does that sound like a non-sequiter? Well, life just takes some interesting turns. I’ve always been interested in teaching and in computers, as well as linguistics.
My primary language interest is the Iranian language family. I have studied Farsi, Tajik, Pashtu, and Yaghnobi. In addition to Tajik and Yaghnobi, I am also interested in the other languages spoken in Tajikistan: Russian, Uzbek, and the Pamiri languages.The areas of linguistics that I am interested in are: language description, language acquisition, translation, lexicography, computational linguistics, historical linguistics, morphosyntax, discourse analysis, semantics, and pragmatics.
My interests in computer programming include C, C++, and C#. I’m especially interested in web development. So far I’ve just done ASP.NET web programming.
