I am currently finishing a dictionary of Cayuga (Iroquoian). I and my MA students are also exploring phoneme perception and phoneme awareness in dyslexics.

My research areas of interest include: generative phonology, Optimality Theory, government phonology, and dependency phonology; Cayuga (Iroquoian) phonology, morphology, and lexicography; phoneme perception and manipulation in dyslexics, and language acquisition; Spanish and Italian phonology; Algonquian phonology; Inuktitut and Labrador Inuttut phonology; the syntax-phonology interface; generative syntax.

The language and culture of my heritage is passed on to me orally. it's a different way off learning than how I am taught at school. How do I keep my traditional culture alive while learning to read and being immersed in the majority culture?

Reading is the core of learning and staying in school . improving reading skills with young Aboriginal children can open up the doors to future prospects.
