LSA 121: Phonetic naturalness and unnaturalness in phonology

Gene Buckley is an associate professor at the University of Pennsylvania. He is interested in formal models of phonological knowledge, especially metrical and syllable structure, but also more broadly the interactions of phonology with morphological patterns, and the proper locus of explanations for typological generalizations. His research has included a focus on the Native American languages Kashaya and Alsea. An additional interest is how the categories of spoken language play a role in the development and use of diverse writing systems.
