Hi There

Hello everybody,

It's me, Matt Pearson, back from thesis hibernation.  Having
filed my PhD dissertation on the clause structure of Malagasy, I
can now end my career as a grad student (huzzah!) and return once
more to my conlanging pursuits.  I hope you've all been doing
well in my absence.

For those of you who don't know me, I'm an old regular on this
list (first joined in 1994).  I work on an artlang called Tokana,
spoken by a tribe of sedentary hunter-gatherers who inhabit the
Pacific Northwest in an alternate history.  I've also dabbled in
other projects.  I even got the chance to create the alien Hive
language for the (deservedly) short-lived NBC show "Dark Skies"
(one of the few perks of being a linguist in Los Angeles is the
odd Hollywood job).

Anyhow, I look forward to having the time to participate on the
list again.  It's so good to not be a grad student anymore, and
to have the time for other pursuits besides my dissertation!
