Eric Baković

Professor and Department Chair of Linguistics

Eric Baković's main areas of research are in phonological theory and computational phonology. Phonology is the study of linguistic speech sound patterns and structures, and the relation of these to other aspects of grammar, and phonological theorists are primarily concerned with the development and evaluation of formal/computational devices that adequately describe phonological patterns and structures and that provide maximum explanatory value to particular phonological analyses. Eric's research is primarily concerned with how different types of generalizations about phonological patterns can interact with each other in different ways to produce complex patterns of phonological behavior in different languages.
