Thank you @mmsamiei for this thread!
I’m Amir-Ahmad, a language enthusiast. I’ve had some experience in lexical semantics in general, and specifically on polysemy, homonymy, and synonymy on a multilingual level. I’ve also been spending some time on morphology, and a bit on the historical analysis of language change.
Here’s my GitHub, although I don’t have much on it.
