|My earlier research included work in psychophysics and on Uto-Aztecan languages. My principal long-term focus has been on French linguistics and linguistic theory, particularly in phonology. I am currently working within the framework of Optimality Theory on stress and on aspects of French phonology and morphology. I am also preparing a revised edition of my book "The Sounds of French: An Introduction" and a French version of it ("Les sons du français") for Cambridge University Press,|
