Professor Nicholas Henriksen, a new faculty member in Romance Languages and Literatures, and a welcome new addition to the phonetics/phonology and sociolinguistics community at the University of Michigan, will talk about his research in Phondi this week. Nick is a specialist in Spanish sociolinguistics, with a focus on prosody and the syntax/phonology interface. His presentation will address some of these issues.
The title of his presentation is "Left-periphery effects in wh-questions: Supporting the pitch accent analysis for Spanish". More information, including an abstract, is available here.
