Home ..... Research ..... CV

Hello! My name is Andrew Angeles, and I am a sixth-year Ph.D. student in the Linguistics program at UC Santa Cruz. My advisor is Ryan Bennett. My theoretical research interests broadly include phonology, syntax, and the interface between them, with a focus on Japanese. I am currently investigating the prosodic structure of compound nouns in Kansai Japanese and the factors which condition the prosodic structures observed. Previously, I have also investigated the historical development of the common initial accent pattern in Kyoto Japanese and the mechanisms of agreement in kakari-musubi, a set of focus constructions in Premodern Japanese (all attested stages of Japanese from the 8th century to the 16th century).

I am also interested in how linguistic theory can inform our knowledge of speech-language disorders and clinical practice in speech-language pathology as well as how speech-language disorders can inform linguistic theory.
