Welcome to the latest incarnation of my blog proper. For once, the incentive to keep this updated is more than my own willpower — I have been awarded a grant to help fund my PhD fieldwork from the Department of Language and Linguistic Science at the University of York, and it comes with a condition that I keep a weekly blog during my fieldwork. I have yet to leave for Brazil, but in the mean time intend to add the supporting pages.

Once I begin my fieldwork, in a week or two, the blog will document it, explaining aspects of the research and my experiences in carrying it out. It is intended for a lay audience and linguists alike.

So welcome, look around, and enjoy!
