I want to know how and why languages change. I am particularly interested in:
- investigating which extra-linguistic factors affect language change, if any;
- building and using corpora for research on language change and variation;
- using experimental methods for studying cognitive and social biases that affect language change.
Keywords: language change language evolution linguistic complexity slavic languages computational linguistics experimental models

The official Roman spelling of my full name is Aleksandrs, but people usually call me Sasha (that's a common Russian hypocorism).
