hi, i'm Ed.


i do linguistics

i just defended my Ph.D. at Cornell.

my dissertation research was dedicated to imperatives, but i have broad interests across the syntax/semantics/pragmatics continuum.

i also like historical linguistics and teaching people to not be afraid of writing.

i do other stuff

i'm a citizen of the internet.

i've been a Mac user since the dark days of the mid-90s. i love a good GUI and being a power user. i started an Apple-themed comedy podcast.

i enjoy sports and food of all flavors — i have preferences but i'm not picky.
