Dr. William Lamb (sometimes called Will Lamb) is a linguist who was born in Baltimore and came to Scotland in 1996 to do an MSc in Scottish Gaelic at the University of Edinburgh. He was awarded a PhD for his research into the linguistic registers of Scottish Gaelic in 2002 and published two books based on the first ever tagged speech corpus of Scottish Gaelic. He subsequently taught Gaelic and music at the Benbecula campus of Lews Castle College.
He was an External Examiner for Sabhal Mòr Ostaig between 2013 and 2017 and was involved in Scottish Gaelic spelling reform as a subject specialist reviewer for the Scottish Qualifications Authority in 2011 and 2012. He was the PI for a Napier grant to develop an "On-Line Part-of-Speech (POS) Tagger and Gold-Standard corpus of Scottish Gaelic." He also helped develop the DASG (Stòras na Gàidhlig) corpus.
