Preferred method of contact:
I'm interested broadly in the question of what makes linguistic creatures like us humans different from non-linguistic creatures, and in what ways the structure of their communication systems differ from that of human language, which appears to be an evolutionarily unique cognitive faculty. More narrowly I'm interested in how formal operations yield the unity and variation in the composition of sentences (syntax) we find in the languages of the world.
