David Bowie

Assistant Professor of Linguistics & English Language
University of Alaska Anchorage

Welcome to my homepage!

As it says above, I am a member of the faculty of the Department of English at the University of Alaska Anchorage. My research, broadly stated, focuses on the issues of how individuals manage to work together as coherent groups with little or no overt direction and what principles govern those actions, as well as how those individuals change within those groups as they age. To answer those questions, I look at linguistic variation. I’ve set up this site to give others access to information on my professional activities; you can use the links on the left side of the page or below to get to the various parts of the site. I’ve included a short summary of each page below to help you decide what link to follow.
