Mark Donohue

Language Intelligence

Short Bio: 
Mark Donohue has worked primarily on languages of Indonesia, New Guinea and the Himalayas. From this experience he has developed a healthy respect for the both the freedoms of variation that different languages exhibit, and also the statistical tendencies for specific languages not to utilise that range of possible variation. Attempting to understand not just the kinds of variation that languages show, but also the kinds of similarities, and the reasons for this, drives much of Mark's work in linguistics.
