Travis Major

Assistant Professor - USC Linguistics  | 

About me:   I am an Assistant Professor at the University of Southern California. I am a syntactician and a fieldworker who enjoys the empirical challenges associated with researching understudied languages and exploring how novel empirical data from understudied languages informs syntactic theory.  Much of my research is focused on interactions between  syntax-semantics and syntax-phonology/prosody.  In order to reconcile my goals as a fieldworker with my goals as a theoretician, I also spend considerable time refining techniques and methodology for data collection in my fieldwork, including development of novel techniques.
