Daniel Ross M.A.
I am a Ph.D. student in the Department of Linguistics at the University of Illinois. My interest in Linguistics comes from an interest in learning languages. My goal is to study theoretical linguistics while maintaining a strong base in typology, and work toward a general understanding of how language works, or more specifically how language can work. My research centers around the relationship between Morphosyntax and Semantics.
I have research interests in Syntax, Semantics, Morphology, Typology, Historical Linguistics, Psycholinguistics and Language Acquisition.With any extra time, I enjoy studying languages even if I don’t become fluent. Learning to think, even a little, in a language other than English is a very rewarding experience. In my opinion, this is also crucial for being prepared to do linguistic analysis in diverse languages. When I can, I enjoy traveling around the world; I have spent time in Europe and South America, among other places.
