Introduction

Greetings, welcome to my page! My name is Amy, and I am a second year M.A. student in Linguistics at Eastern Michigan University.
My interests in linguistics continues to grow everyday. I am primarily concerned with language documentation of indigenous and endangered languages.
Other interests include: pragamtics, metaphor usage, politeness theory and discourse analysis.
Aside from pureley theoretical linguistics, I am interested in ethnobotany & traditional healing as well as native studies.
The picture above is of me from when I did field work in Motozintla de Mendoza, Chiapas, Mexico in December 2009. There I worked with speakers of Mocho', a Mayan language, spoken by around thirty or so people.

My interests in action

Listen to me elicit! Below is an audio clip from an elicitation session I did with Mfon Udoinyang in the summer of 2010 for an Indepedent Study on lexicon creation. Mfon is a speaker of Ibibio, a language spoken in Nigeria, belonging to the Niger-Congo family. Do I sound a little nervous?
