Biography

Alicia's interests are in historical pragmatics and linguistic forensics as they pertain to Colonial Inquisition documents in particular, and medieval Spanish, in general. She would also like to study the linguistics of medieval Spanish poetry, especially the Romancero/Romances. Etymology, mainly for old Spanish words, is another interest, and she hopes to (someday) become reasonably proficient in paleography and transcribing old documents.
