I am an applied linguist. I lead the Texas Czech Legacy Project the goal of which is to create a central place documenting the language, culture, and history of ethnic Czech Moravians in Texas. The first stage of our Project involves creating the Texas Czech Dialect Archive (TCDA), a repository of audio-recordings gathered from ethnic Czech Moravians in Texas since the 1970s through the 2000s.
