Who I Might Like to Work With

I will be working with Devyani Mahajan. We will be working on the Lakota language.

I do not have a strong preference but I am leaning more towards wishing to work with someone who is good with linguistics. I have taken LING001 and CS21 before so I have some initial background in both linguistics and coding.

Lakota

Morphology The Lakota language seems synthetic, more specifically agglutinative, and follows S-O-V order. There are two paradigms for verb inflection: (1) set of morphemes indicates the person and number of the subject of active verbs and (2) set of morphemes agrees with the object of transitive action verbs or the subject of stative verbs. Some enclitics are associated with particular genders but men and women do not always use them exclusively to a specific gender.
