Research Expertise and Interest

morphology, phonology, reduplication, child phonology

Research Description

Inkelas has focused since her doctoral dissertation on the interface between phonology (sound structure) and morphology (word structure). Her dissertation developed a new theoretical model of the interface; she has published books on reduplication (with Cheryl Zoll, in 2005) and on the phonology-morphology interface (in 2014). With Gabriela Caballero, she has worked on a new theoretical model integrating construction morphology with optimality theory. Her most recent research centers on child phonology and on Q Theory, a subsegmental theory of phonological representations.
