Name:zigeunerweisen
Birthdate:Apr 12
Location:United States of America
I'm currently in the Ph.D program in Brain and Cognitive Science at the University of Rochester, where I study discourse-related stuff from a psycholinguistic and computational perspective, and will hopefully complete a joint degree with Computer Science. I studied computational linguistics at OSU as an undergrad and Masters student, and can babble for hours about Pronoun Resolution algorithms, if that's your sort of thing. I finished my MA in '06, working on null pronoun resolution in Korean. I love interpreted programming languages. I also love monospace fonts, which drives my wonderful husband sabishi nuts. I'm quite the language-geek, especially when it comes to Germanic languages both current and dead, and am currently working on acquiring Winnie the Pooh, The Little Prince, and Alice in Wonderland/Through the Looking Glass in as many languages as possible, as well as on teaching myself Icelandic and (soon) Finnish. I used to run marathons, but never will again thanks to my screwed up spine and chronic illness. I'm also a knitter and a violinist. I'm not horribly exciting, but I am nice, I promise.

I mostly use LJ to blather about life/school/politics, and keep my entire journal friends-only because it's just easier that way. I'm happy to make some new friends here, though! Just ask.

In addition to this friends-only journal, I keep a public knitting blog here.





And though the shadow of a sigh
May tremble through the story,
For "happy summer days" gone by,
And vanish'd summer glory -
It shall not touch, with breath of bale
The pleasance of our fairy tale.
...Lewis Carroll, Through the Looking Glass



I love sabishi. Here are our Wedding Pictures.
