My research focuses on defining what core mechanisms are available to phonology. Can phonology create true copies of sounds? Can it fully transpose (reorder) them? By examining these questions, I aim to address the question of how morphosyntax (and postsyntactic operations, if they exist) differ formally from phonology proper.
Some topics I’ve worked on lately include: metathesis, consonant epenthesis, infixation, and person discontinuities in agreement.
I also do fieldwork in Eastern Indonesia on Uab Meto, an understudied Austronesian language.
