Dialectical Discourses

Professor Arsalan KahnemuyipourThis episode of the VIEW to the U podcast features Professor Arsalan Kahnemuyipour. We learn more about the linguistics research he undertakes in U of T Mississauga’s Department of Language Studies as an Associate Professor, and in the Department of Linguistics at University of Toronto St. George campus, where he has been on faculty since 2010. Prior to coming to UTM, Arsalan was an Assistant Professor of Linguistics at Syracuse University in the U.S. for six years.

This episode came out in time for Canadian Multiculturalism Day on June 27, and also in connection with the third season of VIEW to the U highlighting UTM’s Global Perspectives, Arsalan outlines some of the ongoing international collaborations he has with linguists around the world.

His areas of expertise include many facets of linguistics including the syntax of phrases, morphology – or the structure of words – and phonology, the sounds of speech, with a particular focus on Iranian languages.
