A clearer link to my research page.

Welcome to Blazing Hyphens (Makafim Lohatim), a blog whose name sounds better in Hebrew. This blog is a rather random assortment of quirks, ponders (is that a valid noun?) and observations I make. Since language is my main passion, most of the posts revolve around the meaningless parts of linguistics. I also write meaningful squibs (sometimes with more-than-just-google research!) which I post at Dagesh Kal, the Israeli answer to Language Log. In addition, I overuse parentheses.

My short bio: Yuval Pinter (b. 1984) is a Senior Lecturer at Ben-Gurion University, previously a PhD student at Georgia Tech and before that a Research Engineer at Yahoo Research.  Yuval graduated from the Adi Lautman Interdisciplinary Program for Outstanding Students at Tel Aviv University with a BSc. in Mathematics and Computer Science and an MA in Linguistics. Happily married to Moran, father of Inbal and Keren, and owning Kesem.
