I'm studying computational linguistics at Brigham Young University. I work with linguistic cognitive modelling and automated language testing using speech recognition.

I have been an avid studier of Japanese since 2003, and lived and worked as a missionary in the Chuugoku and Shikoku regions from 2007-2009. I passed the JLPT level 1 in 2009.

comment わ usage at the end of sentences
There's overlap, I suppose. Think of yo as being used when directly transferring information to another (or I suppose you could be talking to yourself). The male wa is exclamatory. "疲れてるわ!" "ええわ!" (slamming door on salesman's face).
