Interfaces between prosody and grammar

My primary research interests lie in the interfaces between prosody and syntax/semantics/information structure.
Prosody is concerned with musical properties of a language, involving rhythm, stress, and intonation.
Linguistically important information is often reflected in the prosody of speech.

My current work concerns
  • the correlation between prosody and epistemic bias of negative interrogatives in Japanese and Korean,
  • the interplay between lexical pitch accent and post-lexical prosody in Japanese.
I also have a background in research on the relationship between wh-questions and focus as well as their acoustic and perceptual correlates in Japanese and Korean.
