Hello! My mane is Uliana and originally I come from Russia, Siberia.

Why linguistics?

I have always been interested in humanities which is why after graduating from one of the Siberian high schools I decided to study German and English. During my studies at Kuzbass State Pedagogical University in Siberia and pursuing a degree in teaching German language I took a few linguistics classes such as Introduction to Linguistics, Socio- and Psycholinguistics and Typology of German and Russian languages. I was so captivated by what I learned about linguistics from these courses that I decided to study linguistics after I graduate.


Right now I'm getting my masterís degree in Linguistics at Eastern Michigan University and working at LINGUIST List in several projects such as Multitree, Catalogue of Endangered Languages (ELCat) and LL Map, I also post jobs in the job area of the site. I'm so happy and grateful for the opportunity to study and work with linguistics at the same time! I can't imagine my life without studying languages and everything about them. And right now I'm doing exactly what I want.

What's going on?

At this point of my life I'm trying to decide what next step I want to take in linguistics science because there are so many things that fascinate me. Among my current interests are Neurolinguistics, Psyco- and Sociolinguistics and Morphology. I am also interested in endangered languages, especially in Siberian languages since my father comes from indigenous peoples of Siberia whose name is Shor. The Shor language and the whole culture of Shor people is slowly fading away shifting to Russian language and traditions.

Out and about

Outside school and work at LINGUIST List my interests include swimming, yoga and of course snowboarding since I come from Siberia.
