Research Overview

The overarching question that my research programme investigates is how phonology and syntax communicate inside the word; specifically, my research explores the correspondence between syntactic cyclicity and prosodic recursion in words. My work focuses primarily on the verbal domain, including the syntax and semantics of event structure and templatic morphology and reduplication in verbs. Many of the data I analyze come from first-hand fieldwork on endangered languages, including Chukchansi Yokuts (Penutian: California) and Saisiyat (Austronesian: Taiwan).
