- Dr. Whom, Consulting Linguist, Grammarian, Orthoëpist, and Philological Busybody
I am still interested in languages, as well as folk music, filk music, science fiction, and other things. Including the family cat.
I wrote my dissertation on American Sign Language (Ph.D. in Linguistics, University of California at Berkeley), and I've studied lots more languages to a greater or lesser degree. Languages I've worked with in recent years* include Thai, Tagalog, Pashto, Tigrinya, Moroccan Berber, Yoruba, Bengali, Tamil, and Urdu. I also developed and maintained the LDC's Language Resource Wiki.
I'm Thnidu on Wikipedia, where I've been editing since September 2005.
* But do not speak or write.
