Here are some projects I’ve worked on which aren’t being actively updated anymore, but where it’s still convenient to have the links in one place somewhere, at least those that haven’t succumbed to link rot!

Other resources

I’ve contributed to the group blog Strong Language, a sweary blog about swearing. I also wrote a Medium post about how to get started with Twitter.

On All Things Linguistic, I run a series of interviews and posts about people with linguistics backgrounds who have gone on to work outside academia: the linguistics jobs series.

I also ran a series with advice for protolinguists: high school students who would like to learn more about linguistics. Selected posts:

General teaching resources from my blog:

In July 2014, I taught two linguistics courses to 9-14 year olds at Explorations, a Montreal summer day camp for nerdy kids. I wrote summary blog posts each week with the activities we did and some reflections on the experience, as a resource for future linguistics activities with high schoolers and younger.

The #lingwiki editathons build from a crowdsourced linguistics project that I organized in summer 2014 to improve the linguistics-explaining resources online. The three organizational posts with the plans and summary of the series are here:

I’d also like to highlight a few of the more in-depth explanations that people wrote:

In April 2014, I taught an introduction to linguistics course with particular focus on Mi’gmaq as part of the Bachelor of Community Studies (BACS) joint program between Cape Breton University and Listuguj First Nation. The course was a month-long intensive course equivalent to a single semester (3 credit) course. I did not summarize the course online, but do see a series of blog posts I did at as an introduction to Algonquianist terminology especially with respect to Mi’gmaq (parts one, two, threefour and five). See also my MA thesis and for more on the grammar of Mi’gmaq.
