I am a linguist who writes about the intersections of language, social identity, and film and media. I’m particularly interested in the linguistics of humor, language and accents in film, and representations of race and sexuality. I’ve published in The Chronicle of Higher Education and Babel: The Language Magazine, in addition to academic journals (including Daedalus, Amerasia Journal, and American Speech).
