I am an Adjunct Assistant Professor of Linguistics at Saint John’s University and a Visiting Scholar in Computer Science at NYU. My dissertation, “The Spread of Change in French Negation” drew on a corpus of theatrical texts from the twelfth through twentieth centuries. In 1998 I created one of the first prototype sign language synthesis applications.
