Personal profile

Research Interests

Sound patterns of human languages. Primary area of research is prosody—the intonation and rhythmic patterns of language—and its role in conveying information about word and sentence structure, pragmatic meaning, speaker’s emotion, and the dynamics of social interaction. Second area of specialization is the phonology and phonetics of Sindhi, an Indo-Aryan language.
