I am Michael Clauss, recent PhD graduate of the Department of Linguistics at the University of Massachusetts Amherst. I completed my dissertation in September 2017, under the supervision of Tom Roeper and Jeremy Hartman.

The Form and Acquisition of Free Relatives.

My linguistic interests are (or in any case were) in syntax, acquisition, and socio-political issues of multi-lingual communities and language revitalization. To find out more about past and on-going research, see the Research page.
