Colin P Masica

Professor Emeritus of Linguistics and South Asian Languages and Civilizations

Colin P Masica is professor emeritus in the Department of South Asian Languages and Civilizations and the Department of Linguistics at the University of Chicago. Although ostensibly a specialist in Indo-Aryan languages, his real interest has been in the typological convergence of languages belonging to different linguistic stocks in the South Asian area and beyond and in possible explanations for it and implications of it in connection with both linguistic and cultural history.
