Ai Taniguchi [aɪtanigɯtʃi].
I'm a Ph.D. student in linguistics at Michigan State University. Marcin Morzycki is my advisor, and I primarily work on formal semantics. I'm particularly interested in the semantics of exclamatives and other expressions of non-canonical intensification.
I teach LIN200 (Introduction to Language), supervised by Alan Munn. I also occasionally fill in teaching Japanese language courses and LIN437 (Semantics and Pragmatics). I'm also the lab artist for the MSU Language Acquisition Lab.
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.
