Biography, Education and Training

I am a professor of linguistics who works on phonology and phonetics: speech sounds in languages. My main language interest is Russian, but my work is directed at an understanding of language in general. I also frequently work on Irish (Gaelic). My work combines formal analysis, usually within Optimality Theory, with experimental methodologies. I am particularly interested in the role of contrast and perceptual distinctiveness in phonetics and phonology.
