Finished my dissertation

I defended my dissertation Grounds for Commitment in May 2014. It’s about a class of grammaticalized strategies for facilitating the negotiation of commitments in discourse, and makes connections to evidentiality and epistemic modality. Let me know if you'd like to see it.

Commencement was on June 13th. Here I am after the ceremony with my fiancée Lauren Winans and my advisor Donka Farkas.
