INTRODUCTION

I am a professor of Spanish specializing in applied linguistics. I have been at Cal. State, LA since 1976 and teach both undergraduate and graduate courses in language and linguistics.

EDUCATION

Ph.D. Spanish, Applied Linguistics, University of California, Los Angeles, 1976
MA Spanish University of New Mexico, 1969
BA Spanish University of New Mexico, 1965


TEACHING INTERESTS

During my career I have taught a wide range of courses both at the undergraduate and graduate levels. I enjoy teaching language and linguistics courses and each has different rewards. My teaching interests include Spanish as a second language, Spanish for native speakers, and, of course, classes like Phonetics and Phonology, Morphology, Syntax, Sociolinguistics, and History of the Spanish Language. I would like for my students to feel excited and interested about learning Spanish for whatever purpose they may have.

RESEARCH INTERESTS AND REPRESENTATIVE PUBLICATIONS

My main interest when I started teaching was in the acquisition of Spanish as a second language.  I have written articles and coauthored several textbooks mainly for first and second year university language courses.  Since Cal. State, LA has a large Hispanic population and most of my students learned Spanish as their first language, I also have an interest in doing research in the area of Spanish for native speakers and developing materials for this student population.
