Sarah Murray

Associate Professor


Murray's primary interests are the semantics and pragmatics of natural language, specifically what sorts of formal representations are needed to analyze a variety of linguistic structures across grammatically diverse languages.

She currently does fieldwork with the Cheyenne over the summers on the Northern Cheyenne Indian Reservation in Southeastern Montana. In addition, she is interested in fieldwork and field methods in general, especially the methodology of semantic fieldwork.
