            Most of my research belongs to one of two fields.  One is the history of linguistics, within which I am currently

completing projects on Roman Jakobson and on Otto Jespersen.  Another is second language acquisition.  In that field I am working on a multi-stage research project about the acquisition of the Japanese writing system by adult second-language learners.  A number of publications unite my two interests, analyzing the history of the study of second language acquisition.
