Emily Clem

Assistant Professor

Emily Clem received her BA in Linguistics from The Ohio State University and her PhD in Linguistics from UC Berkeley. Her research focuses on syntax and its interfaces with semantics and morphology. Her work incorporates description, analysis, and theory, with an emphasis on using data from understudied languages to inform syntactic theory. She has collaborated with indigenous language community members and other linguists on both documentation and large-scale typology projects on languages of Africa and the Americas, especially Amazonian languages. Some topics of her research include case, agreement, binding, and switch-reference.
