Ruth KramerAssistant Professor
Department of Linguistics
My research is mostly in theoretical syntax and morphology, and I have particular interests in clitic doubling, gender, number, and the fine line between prepositions and case markers. The languages I work on are Amharic (Ethio-Semitic) and Ancient Egyptian (the language written with hieroglyphs), both of which are members of the Afroasiatic language family.
For detailed information about my past and present research activities, see my C.V. and this list of downloadable papers and handouts.
The objective of a linguistics course is not only to impart an awareness of the complexity and systematicity of language, but also to promote a scientific worldview in a uniquely accessible way.
I greatly enjoy teaching, and please see here for a list of past and present courses (being) taught.
If you need to reach me, here's how. For the curious: more information on how I began studying Egyptian, and things that I do when I am not doing linguistics.
