Academically speaking, I am a linguist . My main interest as a teacher and a researcher is in the study of how different languages assemble words to form sentences (syntax) and how sentences can be used to convey meaning (semantics and pragmatics). If you like linguistic jargon, I am a linguist who is interested in the crosslinguistic study of the syntax-semantics-pragmatics interface.


Wovon man nicht sprechen kann, darüber muß man schweigen.
'What we cannot speak about we must pass over in silence.'
[ Ludwig Wittgenstein, Tractatus Logico-philosophicus, Prop. 7 ]
