      Currently completing a doctoral studies at Charles University in Prague on a linguistic analysis of abstraction and ambiguity in Mongolian riddles. Themes includes: “ruined” and “eroded” words, Tibetan, Sanskrit, and Chinese loanwords as traces of linguistic archeology; structural analysis of parallelism, layered and stepped riddles; missing ethnographic context; cosmological imagery generated through iconopeia or image-formation words; the function of deixis, movement and stasis in Mongolian riddles.
