Hi, my name's Matthew (Matt) Juge. I'm an Associate Professor in the Dept. of Modern Languages at Texas State University-San Marcos. My orientation is comparative, both temporally and cross-linguistically. I focus primarily on historical linguistics, semantics, grammaticalization, sociolingistics. The languages I work on the most are Romance (esp. Catalan, Spanish, Portuguese, Rhaeto-Romance), Basque, and Germanic (esp. Scandinavian).
