Ian Robert Tippets received his Ph.D. in Hispanic Linguistics from Ohio State University in 2010.  His primary research interests focus on language variation and change of morphosyntactic variables as observed both synchronically and diachronically.  Additional areas of interest for both research and teaching include sociolinguistics, dialectology and language attitudes.  Dr. Tippets has had the opportunity to spend time abroad in various research and service capacities including Ecuador, Peru, Guatemala, Bolivia, Brazil and most recently Spain.  Also, he once spent a week on vacation in Mexico but that doesn’t count. These experiences have influenced his classroom instruction by emphasizing the diversity of language and culture in the Spanish-speaking world. Importantly he believes that a mutual tolerance of and appreciation for both American football and fútbol can be achieved in his lifetime.
