Andrew Nevins is a Professor of Linguistics at University College London. Professor Nevins earned his Ph.D. in Linguistics from MIT in 2005. His research areas are phonological and morphological theory and the use of experimental methods to shed light on speakers’ knowledge of patterns in their language. He is primarily interested in formal restrictions on phonotactics and morphotactics, microvariation within closely related varieties of the same language, naturalistic misperception, and the representation of features. He has current research projects on nasal harmony, lenition, compounding, and cliticization, including work on Brazilian Portuguese, Basque, Maxakalí, and Slovenian.
