I am a third-year graduate student in the Linguistics Department at MIT. My primary interests are in syntax. I have worked on the English disjunction coordinator either, ellipsis, and expletives there and it. Recently I have branched out into prosody, and am interested in how syntax affects phonological phrasing.
