Tatar is a Turkic languages spoken in Tatarstan, Russia. There are approximately five million speakers.

I have been working on Tatar since 2016, with LA-based language consultants.

My research in Tatar primarily focuses on the interaction of tense and evidentiality, especially in embedded contexts. Click here my most recent paper on that topic.

Unpublished projects in Tatar include focus sensitive question markers, index shifting, and binding.
