Alyson G. Eggleston

Alyson G. Eggleston received her Ph.D. in Linguistics from Purdue University. Her predoctoral preparation includes an A.B. and M.A. in English from Youngstown State University, with a focus during her graduate studies on composition pedagogy and English as a Second Language (ESL) pedagogy. Her research and teaching interests include language-cognition interaction effects, technical and scientific writing and pedagogy, and second language-learning.

Alyson teaches Technical Writing and Communication (COMM 260), a course offering she developed to meet the emergent communicative and preprofessional needs of students majoring in Engineering, Mathematics, and Computer Science. She also teaches language and composition classes for English-language learners (ENGL 101 01; ENGL 111), as well as linguistics-oriented courses for the joint Master of Arts in Teaching program (ENGL 553 Modern English Grammar; ENGL 554 History of the English Language). In the past, she has taught undergraduate and graduate-level linguistics courses, covering topics in second language acquisition and authentic language assessment; phonology; syntax; dialectology; typology; corpus linguistics; and selected methods of statistical analysis. She has also developed and taught empirical linguistics courses, including a course on language-cognition interaction as well as a field methods-oriented course on indigenous languages of the Americas.
