Assistant Professor

Olivia Lam’s research interests lie mainly in syntax and morphology. Her current interests include the syntax of double object constructions, especially the syntax of the give-construction; and, the cross-linguistic morphological and syntactic properties of objects. She is particularly interested in the morphosyntax of Chinese and African languages. She teaches syntactic theory and morphological theory at both the undergraduate and graduate levels, and offers a Common Core course on human language.
