Her publications include "Knowledge of grammar, knowledge of usage: Syntactic probabilities affect pronunciation variation," and "Knowledge of grammar includes knowledge of syntactic probabilities" (both with Susan Garnsey, Language 2004 and 2006); a Special Issue on Exemplar-based Models in Linguistics in The Linguistic Review (edited with Alan C. L. Yu), and "Thyme and time are not homophones: The effect of lemma frequency on word durations in spontaneous speech" (Language, 2008).
