About the author

Few things in life are more sacred than knowledge-sharing. Humans have evolved complex language, giving us the unique ability to propagate records of our discoveries, insights, and achievements. As an aspiring educator, my goal is to disseminate a combination of my personal experience, previous research, and independent readings to enrich the lives of others. During my Master's degree, my research centered around analyzing ambiguity in the written and spoken word. While I believe there is no concrete way to avoid ambiguity in our communications (or miscommunications), becoming aware of the shortcoming of our language system is the first step.
