My work focuses on the earliest stages of linguistic information extraction and processing involved in the retrieval of individual words and parts of words, and in the combination of those pieces to form complex utterances. I am interested in how we store and process morphological constituents, how early, automatic morphological processing mechanisms handle irregularity, and how we assemble morphological constituents into interpretable words and phrases. I am also interested in how lexical semantic information is extracted and integrated into compositional semantic interpretations, and in how the semantics of roots interacts with the semantics of functional morphemes. In one way or another, almost all of my research centres on the morpho-syntax and morpho-semantics of verbs.
