Aaron Ecay


I am a postdoctoral research associate at the Center for Language History and Diversity in the Department of Language and Linguistic Science at the University of York. I received my PhD in 2015 from the University of Pennsylvania. My primary research interest is in the field of historical syntax. Specifically, I am interested in investigating how diachronic patterns of language use can answer questions about the architecture of synchronic grammar. I am also interested in the refinement of statistical methods as applied to linguistic data and syntactic questions more generally.
