Dr. Royal Skousen, Ph.D, Brigham Young University, Department of English
I provide three bibliographical lists. The first is my work on analogical
modeling (or more recently referred to as quantum analogical modeling, QAM).
The second is my work on the critical text of the Book of Mormon, with the recent
publication of the first two volumes (typographical facsimiles of the original
and printer's manuscripts). The third is a collection of various other papers
which show other areas of interest.

Dr. Cynthia Hallen, Ph.D, Brigham Young University, Department of Linguistics
I am working on a dictionary of all the words in Emily Dickinson's poems, the Emily Dickinson Dickinson Lexicon, to be published by Greenwood. About 12 students are working for me, thanks to a Mentoring Environment Grant from the BYU office of Research and Creative Arts.
I am also presenting a paper on ED's syntax in terms of T-units (main clause + modifiers) for presentation at the international EDIS conference in Trondheim, Norway, this August. I am collaborating with Jennifer Shakespear, a student who just graduated, who worked on T-units in Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte. I am also writing a quarterly or bi-annual column called "What's in a Word?" for the Journal of Book of Mormon Studies. I will invite students to do similar research in the LING 450 class this Fall.
Someday I hope to do some historical comparative research in Aymara.
