I have been called a sociolinguist, a linguistic anthropologist, and a sociologist of language. You can call me Chad. I study Japanese speakers in the United States, as well as bilingual speakers in Japan. My interests include bilingualism, code switching, and language and political economy. I am attempting to develop a theory of political micro-economy, which draws from microanalysis of face-to-face interaction, and broader ideas from practice theory and related frameworks.
