PhD

1973-1978
Ph.D. in Linguistics, University of Edinburgh

My doctoral dissertation, supervised by Profs. Ronald E. Asher and Roger Lass, was an excellent training in sound methodology and precise argumentation. The dissertation was a study of the syntax and semantics of German prepositions. I have retained a lifelong interest in those tiny but vital words. During my final year, I taught courses in general and French semantics.
