Research introduction

Our research is grounded in the core theoretical linguistic areas of syntax/morphology and phonology/phonetics, with a focus on Minimalism and Optimality Theory. These core areas inform our research strength in Indigenous languages, language acquisition and disorders, and sociolinguistics.

Ph.D. research is especially encouraged in the areas described in these pages.
