I've just realized that I've never introduced myself, even though I
joined Darwin-L a couple of months ago. I'm an historical linguist with
specialization in Romance, primarily Italian (very much including dialects)
and secondarily in Spanish, with interest focused most tightly on theory of
sound change, and thus--relevant to the List lately--on both divergence and
convergence. I'm an associate professor in the Dept of French and Italian,
University of Wisconsin-Madison.

I thank Bob O'Hara immensely for starting this List, which is the most
stimulating I've seen.
