Jordan Garrett, a third-year Ph.D. student in Hispanic Linguistics at Indiana University, completed his B.A. and M.A. at the University of Iowa. His research interests include Spanish and Portuguese morphosyntax, second language acquisition, and foreign/second language pedagogy. His publications and conference presentations include work on the syntax of object expression, coordination and the syntax-information structure interface, as well as SLA projects in online processing and the acquisition of dialectal variation in study abroad. Many of his projects look to bridge the gap between formal approaches to SLA and syntax with other frameworks to further research on the structure and acquisition of variable language phenomena.
