Eric Russell Webb

Education:

  1. PhD (UT Austin)

Biography:

My research focuses on the influence of external factors (namely biomechanics, cognition and social factors) on grammar (particularly the phonological grammar); I am interested in the architecture of grammatical models and how these can be expanded to encompass factors such as ease of articulation, cognitive weighting, and social preference. I am also interested in the evolution of grammar, particularly in creole formation.

Research Interests:

Language Structure and Theory:

Phonological theory; phonetics; sound change in language contect situations; French, Creole languages
