The Phonology Group at UCalgary studies the patterns and nature of speech sounds across different languages, including segmental and prosodic phenomena in adults and children. Our approaches range from theoretical phonology to laboratory phonology, with a special interest in Indigenous languages of Canada.
Dr. Darin Flynn’s interests include phonology and its relation to phonetics, morphology, and syntax; Indigenous languages; rap linguistics; taboo language; and personal names.
Dr. Angeliki Athanasopoulou focuses on prosodic development and prosodic typology, aiming to understand different aspects of prosodic systems across languages, both how they are structured and processed, and how they develop in children.
