Othman Alshehri, PhD Candidate

I am a fifth-year Ph.D. candidate in the Department of Linguistics at the University of Arizona. My core research interests lie in syntax and its interfaces with other modules of grammar, including morphology and semantics. My primary research has recently channeled toward the morpho-syntax and semantics of possession and nominalization with a special focus on Semitic languages. I also like to expose myself to research from the cognitive science literature, specifically that which focuses on language acquisition, language processing, and language evolution. When I am not doing linguistics, I like to read non-fiction and explore the wonders of reality. I'm also passionate about photography and mechanics.
