I am a formal linguist working principally on the syntax/semantics interface. My dissertation is on the sytax and semantics of the Japanese aspectual morpheme -te iru and -te aru. In addition, I am interested in second/foreign language acquisition, and I've been teaching elementary and intermediate level Japanese courses at Queens College for almost ten years. My recent work includes several self-study Japanese books published by Living Language/Random House. I also worked with the same publisher on self-study books featuring Spanish, Italian, and German languages. I am currently working on a joint research project with Alison Gabriele (University of Kansas) on the acquisition of Japanese bare nominals by native English speakers.
