About Me: I earned a BA in Philosophy with a minor in Mediterranean/Middle East Studies (Classics) from the University of Notre Dame (2011). I received an MA in German from UW-Madison (2014), and argued in my MA thesis for an optative origin to the West Germanic zero-grade 2nd-person singular preterite form. I am currently working towards my PhD in Germanic historical linguistics, and my dissertation project looks at the earliest evidence for the unfolding of primary umlaut in Old High German.
