Portrait of Graham   Thurgood

A professor of linguistics at California State University (Chico, CA), Graham Thurgood specializes in tonogenesis, historical linguistics, language contact, and second language acquisition.

He has reconstructed Chamic (Austronesian), Hlai languages (Kra-Dai and Kam-Sui), and parts of Tibeto-Burman (Sino-Tibetan). His area of research includes several languages from ethnic minorities still in use in modern Cambodia, and brings to us new insights on the Champa civilization.
