Briar Patch, VA

Bonjour tout le monde !

Full disclosure: I strive to find balance on the descriptive/prescriptive, but I am prone to the prescriptive.

My appreciation for this community comes from the joys of observing and sharing questions in this ever-changing bastard child of a language. A native speaker of American English with influences from the American South and from Canada, I am also fluent in French (C1) and Québécois French (C1).

Foreign languages and pedagogy are my academic passions. My degree is in French Linguistics.

As a teacher, working with children brings daily opportunities to research language acquisition and intersubjectivity. Occasionally I work taking orders and vending victuals at a restaurant near you.

I enjoy long walks on the beach and foreign films.
