Research interests: Salishan languages

My interests include morphology, typology, language description/documentation, Native American languages, particularly the Salishan languages, and all things linguistic. (... well, almost all!) I have been conducting research on the Sliammon/Homalco/Klahoose language, which is one of the Coast Salish languages. A representative work is my 2003 publication, A Morphological Description of Sliammon, Mainland Comox Salish, With a Sketch of Syntax, which is a revised and expanded version of my 2000 Kyoto University doctoral dissertation. (For availability, please contact eplr[at] I am currently also working on a project (as the project coordinator) on clause combining, along with some twenty colleagues.
