Dr. Miles Beckwith teaches courses in English, linguistics, Latin, and other classical subjects. He has also directed independent study courses for students in Old Irish, Sanskrit, and linguistics. His research covers a range of linguistic topics with a focus on classical languages and the Algonquian languages of America—especially the languages of the Delaware (Lenape) people. Dr. Beckwith has a number of publications on the linguistic development of Greek and Latin and is the author (with Dr. Ives Goddard) of The Delaware Primers of Ira D. Blanchard and A Glossary to the Delaware Publications of Ira D. Blanchard.
