Prof. Robert Reynolds

I am an Associate Research Professor in the Office of Digital Humanities at Brigham Young University. I received a Ph.D. from UiT - The Arctic University of Norway in Tromsø, Norway, where I was a member of the CLEAR research group, and the Giellatekno language technology group. I also worked closely with members of the Department of Linguistics at the University Tübingen.


I began teaching Russian professionally in 2002. I received my MA degree in Russian Linguistics from The Ohio State University in 2011, and in 2008 I received a B.S from Brigham Young University in Russian and Psychology, with a Philosophy minor.


My work currently focuses on Russian Intelligent Computer-Assisted Language Learning (ICALL). I am most interested in the following topics:


  • I. Finite-state morphological analysis and disambiguation

  • II. Automatic Visual Input Enhancement

  • III. Automatic L2 readability analysis

  • IV. Indexing online texts for language learners (e.g., grammar-aware search engine)

  • V. Structure of Russian, especially as it relates to developing Russian ICALL activities
