Emily Manetta

Assistant Professor of Anthropology

Emily Manetta, Assistant Professor of Anthropology, received her B.A. from Swarthmore College in Philadelphia and her Ph.D. from the University of California, Santa Cruz in Linguistics. Her current work focuses on the syntax of South Asian languages. Her dissertation, based on linguistic fieldwork with a Kashmiri refugee community, featured a comparative analysis of the syntax of questions in Kashmiri and Hindi-Urdu. Dr. Manetta has a strong secondary research interest in the sociolinguistics and syntax of non-standard varieties of English, in particular in her native Appalachia.

Dr. Manetta will be involved in the continuing development of Linguistics courses at UVM, teaching "Language and Mind," "Language and Meaning," and "Language in Religious Communities" in AY 2007-2008, and a course in syntax in AY 2008-2009.
