My recent research investigates the linguistic consequences of bilingualism and language contact, focusing on French and Spanish in contact with other languages
Current Projects
  1. Haitian Kreyol influence on Dominican Spanish (with Jacqueline Toribio): an investigation of the putative effects of Kreyol on the Dominican Spanish spoken on the border between Haiti and the DR.

  2. The phonology of Frenchville (PA) French:  an investigation of phonological stability and restructuring due to long term language contact)

  3. First language (in)stability (with Jacqueline Toribio and Nuria Sagarra):  how and why does a first language change under second language influence?

  4. The phonetics and phonology of code-switching: research on the effect of language alternation on pronunciation
