Brian W. Smith, Linguist
Welcome! I am a PhD student at the Linguistics Department of UMass Amherst.
I have worked primarily on morphophonology, especially phonologically-conditioned ineffability, metrical stress, and French schwa. You can read more about my past and ongoing research here.
I also teach or TA linguistics 101/201 from time to time. Course-related materials can be found here.
Before UMass, I attended Rutgers University, New Brunswick, where I studied French and Linguistics.
My non-academic interests include classic films, graphic novels, and art, both traditional and digital.
