I'm Mark A. Mandel, professionally a researcher at the Linguistic Data Consortium (LDC) of the University of Pennsylvania. I sometimes use the sobriquet

Dr. Whom, Consulting Linguist, Grammarian, Orthoëpist, and Philological Busybody

On my own time I am still interested in languages, as well as folk music, filk music, science fiction, and other things. Including the family cat.

I wrote my dissertation on American Sign Language, and I've studied lots more languages to a greater or lesser degree. Languages I've worked with in recent years include Thai, Tagalog, Pashto, Tigrinya, Moroccan Berber, and Yoruba, Bengali, Tamil, and Urdu. Among other current tasks, I am developing and maintaining the LDC's Language Resource Wiki.
