Dr. Min-Joo Kim, author and linguistics professor at Texas Tech University, discusses the joys of research.

My specialization in linguistics is theoretical syntax, semantics, and their interface. The overarching goal of my research is to help uncover principles that govern the mapping between linguistic form and meaning, more specifically, how humans come to compute the intended meaning of an utterance on the basis of its form.
