About me

My name is Adam Werle. I live and work on Vancouver Island, British Columbia, and am an Adjunct Assistant Professor of Linguistics at the University of Victoria. My theoretical research is mainly in the areas of prosodic phonology and the syntax-phonology interface. But the focus of my work since 2002 has been the documentation, analysis, and teaching of Wakashan languages, especially Nuu-chah-nulth, Ditidaht, Kwak'wala, and Makah.
