Nicholas Welch

Postdoctoral researcher, McMaster University and University of Toronto

I'm a researcher in the Department of Linguistics and Languages at McMaster University and the Department of Linguistics at the University of Toronto. I research the syntax-semantics interface. Particular interests of mine include copulas, temporal grammar and the fine structure of the clausal periphery. I investigate these topics chiefly within the languages of the Dene family (formerly known as Athapaskan), in particular Tłı̨chǫ Yatıì (Dogrib) and Tsúùt'ínà (Sarsi). Language documentation and revitalization are key interests of mine.
