Michael Clauss
Current research - Current teaching

Hello folks! I'm Michael Clauss, PhD candidate in Linguistics at the University of Massachusetts Amherst. My linguistic interests are in syntax, acquisition, and socio-political issues of multi-lingual communities and language revitalization.

Below you will find information on my career as an academic and a teacher. To find out more about past and on-going research, see the Research page.

Curious about what this whole linguistics thing is? I suggest this little FAQ I have put together.

Or, if you like, you can find out more information about me and other things I do right here.
