Director of the Phonetics and Phonology Laboratory and of the Lisbon Baby Lab. My research
focuses on Prosody in language, comprising phrasing, intonation, and rhythm, and
using laboratory-based approaches. Prosody is a fascinating domain, as it
comprehends sub-syllabic units to sentence-level or even discourse-level units,
it interfaces with morphology and syntax, it is relevant to information
structure, language processing, or human interaction, and it plays a crucial
role in language acquisition. In my work, I study phrasal prosody and
intonation, seeking to understand the properties of prosodic systems, the extent
to which they vary across and within languages, and how they are acquired by
infants. I also study how prosodic cues may help bootstrapping the learning of
language, and may function as early markers of language
I support LingOA - Linguistics in Open Access. Read more.
