Rik van Gijn
Rik van Gijn is an assistant professor at the Centre for Linguistics.
My interests focus on the indigenous languages of (western) South America, and in particular on the question of the historical development of the stunning linguistic diversity there. Currently I focus on these questions in the context of my ERC-Consolidator project South American Population History Revisited (SAPPHIRE). My teaching experience includes the languages of South America, typology, morphology, field linguistics, descriptive linguistics, and contact linguistics.
