I am Sylvia L.R. Schreiner, previously Sylvia L. Reed.
I am currently investigating prospective aspect in Cherokee, the spatial and temporal semantics of prepositions in varieties of English, nominal predication in Scottish Gaelic, and the roles of different intervals in perfect semantics (among other topics). I completed my Ph.D. in Linguistics at the University of Arizona in 2012. My dissertation focused on the semantics of grammatical aspect, with data from Scottish Gaelic and English.
I completed my B.A. in Classical Studies at Carleton College in 2005. During my time at Carleton I also studied Linguistics, and I began my graduate studies in Linguistics in the fall of 2006. I received my M.A. in Linguistics at the University of Arizona in May 2008.
