Sarah Murray

Associate Professor


Murray's primary interests are the semantics and pragmatics of natural language, specifically what sorts of formal representations are needed to analyze a variety of linguistic structures across grammatically diverse languages.

She has worked with the Cheyenne community in Southeastern Montana since 2006. In addition, she is interested in Indigenous languages, language documentation, and field methodology.
