My Research

Research Interests:

During my time at the University of Alberta, I investigated how the HAL model can help us understand lexical semantic memory, and lexical semantic processes. Towards the end of my program I worked on models of n-gram processing.

For more information on the HAL model called HiDEx, and to download software such as HiDEx, or corpora, please visit the Westbury Lab website.

For up-to-date info about my current research projects, please visit Cyrus Shaoul's new web site.


CV: An up-to-date version of my CV is located at my new web site/a>.

My Albertan Lexicon

My Albertan Lexicon

Version 2.74, Feb 1st, 2019

I have been living in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada since 2003, and have been married to an Albertan since 1998. This experience has given me some exposure to the Albertan language. I have been asked my many people to share my lexical knowledge, and so I have decided to create this little web page. Please send comments and suggestions to me at: (just click it! I promise that it will work!).
