Welcome to this website — I am Brian D. Joseph, Distinguished University Professor of Linguistics and The Kenneth E. Naylor Professor of South Slavic Linguistics at The Ohio State University.  My official professional website is to be found at  However, because — true confession time — I am not all that adept with websites and because the WordPress platform that this one is on is so easy to use that even I can edit it, this site will eventually be the most up-to-date and complete record of all of my professional publications, along with links to downloadable pdfs for all of the articles and minor pieces.

In addition to this website and the more official one, I also have a page on both and, and there might be some additional materials of mine available there. Still, this website that you are visiting right now is likely to be the most up to date (though as of summer 2021, still under construction).
