Who is Bakhmut?

Linguistic Debauchery is not run by robots. My name is Paul (Pavlo) Bakhmut. I currently live and work in Edmonton, AB. I have a background in Philosophy (BA) and am currently working towards completing an MA in Applied Linguistics. I took languages and/or linguistic courses throughout my education at the University of Alberta, Harvard, the University of Warsaw and the National University of Kyiv-Mohyla Academy. I have a life-long experience in language learning and provide expertise in Slavic languages (Russian, Ukrainian, Polish). I also teach Ukrainian at an IHLA member school since 2011.
