I Nyoman Udayana is a senior lecturer in linguistics at the Department of English, Faculty of Arts. He earned his Ph.D from the University of Texas at Austin. His research interests are syntax, lexical semantics, and discourse grammar. He primarily focuses his research on verbs and argument realization and more specifically on the close relationship between verb-predicate’s meaning and their argument(s) that lead to constructions related to reflexivization, logophoricity, and other similar constructions pertaining to valency-preserving or valency-changing phenomena. He is also interested in projects concentrating on the interface between syntax and discourse grammar in Indonesian and Balinese.
