Mike Hammond

Hammond earned a PhD in Linguistics from UCLA in 1984. He has published extensively on stress, syllabification, prosodic morphology, computational phonology, and Optimality Theory. His work has focused on the phonology of English and more recently Welsh and Scottish Gaelic. His work over the last ten years has dealt with: a) on-line judgments of grammaticality as a function of phonotactic probability, and the computational modeling of those judgments; and b) the relationship between lexical and syntactic frequency and phonological well-formedness.
