Richard Bibbs


Welcome! My name is Richard Bibbs. I'm a fifth year Ph.D. student in Linguistics at UC Santa Cruz. My research interests lie broadly in phonology, phonetics, psycholinguistics, and fieldwork, but I am especially interested in questions surrounding the phonetics-phonology interface.

Currently I'm working on the acceptability, and processing, of preposition doubling (e.g. The branch on which the raven perched on was brittle.) in English. On the [p]-side, I've been investigating how laryngeal contexts license a wider range of vocalic contrasts, when compared to oral contexts, in Chamorro (Austronesian, Mariana Islands).
