Linguistics Expert Woodland 532963

Expertise Description

I have over 35 years experience in Linguistics with expertise in how human language works, the syntax and semantics of English, cross-linguistic and diachronic comparison of languages, the structure of words and sentences and how these relate to meaning, language in popular use and what this tells us about cultures and human cognition, and how the scientific study of language can elucidate matters of policy, particularly in the domain of trademark law and statutory interpretation. I have over 15 years expert witness experience with consultations, depositions, and courtroom testimony.
