I'm a first-year linguistics graduate student in the Univeristy of Texas at Austin, specializing in indigeous languages of Latin America. In particular, I study the Valley Zapotec languages of Oaxaca, Mexico, in both modern and colonial forms. My recent work includes collaboration on an initiative to support Zapotec high school students in writing their language on Twitter (see #UsaTuVoz
) and, more theoretically, studying conjunction (‘and’) in Colonial Valley Zapotec.
