I teach courses on phonology at undergraduate and postgraduate levels. In 2008/9, I am teaching the first half of Phonology and Morphology and the first half of Introduction to Phonology in Term 1. Then in Term 2, I'm teaching Intermediate Phonology and an option course on the Comparative Morpho-phonology of Altaic Languages.
ResearchMy recent research has been on the structure of words in Turkish. I have looked at stress, vowel-zero alternation and suffixation aiming to show how those processes shed light on the structure of words. In collaboration with Asli Göksel and Serkan Şener, I also work on the interface between phonology and syntax. We are looking at initial stress in morphologically complex Turkish words. I continue to work on all aspects of syllabic structure and on vowel harmony.
