Peter Emanuel (January 18th 1959, Chicago) is an American-born, former-Libertan and present-day Lovian linguist and author. Emanuel is the author of many publications on linguistic phenomena, lexicography, spelling issues and syntax theory.
Early life and education Edit
Emanuel was born out of a Libertan family who had been living in the United States for some time. They first lived in Illinois, before moving to New Haven, Connecticut, where Peter attended a private high school. A scholarship got him into Yale University. Emanuel earned a master's degree in English linguistics. He then attended Northwestern University in Chicago, where he earned his Ph.D.
In Libertas Edit
In Lovia Edit
Emanuel is now associated with the Blackburn University. He is the head of the linguistics department.
Emanuel is one of the nation's most widely publicized atheists. Emanuel is a full member of the Lovian Freethought Academy. He is also known to be a rationalist and a prominent critic of religion, creationism and pseudoscience. In America and Britain he gained fame as linguist and in Libertas he proved himself a tolerant language policy maker.
In recent years, he has shown himself a moderate supporter of Chomskyan linguistics.
In 2009, he published a essay on the role of language in politics, and in 2010 he published his Introduction to minimalist Generative Grammar, marking his focal shift to syntax.
