About me

My name is Francisco Ongay González and I am from Mexico. I am a student in the Ph.D. program in Linguistics at the University of Calgary. I completed a BA in Languages at the Autonomous University of the State of Mexico and a MA in Hispanic Linguistics at the National Autonomous University of Mexico (the largest university in Latin America). My native language is Spanish and I also speak English and French. I have also studied Japanese, Esperanto, Italian, and Mexican Sign Language. While I have some experience in language teaching and translation, my main interest is language structure and specifically syntax. In my past studies, I have explored some time expressions in Spanish in their semantic and syntactic dimensions. Other than languages and linguistics, I like drama and I have even acted in semi-professional theater back in Mexico. I also like video games, board games, and nature. I came to Canada because I wanted to experience studying and living in a different country, for I believe that such experiences greatly broaden our perspective on life and on language.
