Formal Linguistics

Formal linguistics is notoriously jargon-heavy and difficult to read for non-specialists. Arguments for or against theories of particular phenomena can be quite subtle and difficult to evaluate without years-long training within the field. Are you worried your writing coach won't understand the EPP, the that-trace effect, or ergative case, or that they won't know how to read and interpret lambda calculus? Do you need someone who can read the IPA or who knows what polysynthesis is?

Carrie Gillon is trained in formal (morpho)syntax and semantics, and has written extensively on both. She has mainly researched indigenous languages of North America, as well as Lithuanian and Turkish. She wrote a book on the syntax and semantics of Squamish determiners and co-authored a book (with Nicole Rosen) on the morphosyntax of Michif noun phrases. She understands how complicated languages can be (and what kinds of arguments make sense within formal linguistics) and can help you clarify your arguments without oversimplifying the argumentation.
