Ai Taniguchi [aɪtanigɯtʃi].
I'm currently an instructor in the School of Linguistics and Language Studies at Carleton University. I'm a semanticist. I recently finished my Ph.D. in linguistics at Michigan State University. I'm particularly interested in the semantics and pragmatics of exclamatives and other expressions of non-canonical intensification.
I teach introdutory courses in linguistics (LING2005, LING1001) and semantics classes (LING4505, LING3505).
I'm sure you can tell from my name that I'm Japanese, but I grew up in Peachtree City, Georgia. I'm a native speaker of both Japanese and American English.
My favorite Ai pun is "Dost thou love me? I know thou wilt say 'ay' " (Romeo and Juliet, Act 2, Scene 2). Please e-mail me if you have a better one.
Here's my CV.
