About Adam Ussishkin
Visit my website at ussishkin.org for up to date information and my current CV. I'm a professor in the Department of Linguistics, with appointments in the UA Cognitive Science program, the UA Second Language Acquisition and Teaching program, the Department of Middle Eastern and North African Studies, The Arizona Center for Judaic Studies, and the Center for Middle Eastern Studies. My research focuses on the lexicon, and is informed by psycholinguistic experimentation, as well as formal and laboratory phonology and morphology. Much of the research I conduct centers on Semitic languages, especially Maltese and Modern Hebrew. I also work on corpus creation and evaluation.
Linguistics faculty members Adam Ussishkin and Andy Wedel visited the Department of Linguistics at the University of Oregon April 14-17. In a back-to-back double feature, each of them gave an hour-long colloquium presentation on April 15. Adam spoke... read more
