Personal InfoEdit

My name is Jonathan North Washington, and my personal website can be found at; I also maintain a site for fun at I work on Turkic languages and linguistics—especially phonetics, phonological theory, historical linguistics, descriptive linguistics, and RBMT. I used to be a conlanger in my free time.


I claim responsibility in some way for the content of the following pages—by beginning them, writing them, contributing heavily to them, adding picture(s), or some combination thereof (articles in progress/stubs in italics, and articles I've written the bulk of in bold).
