Dissertation: Laryngeal Articulations and Grammatical Structure
I investigate the interface of different domains of grammar by looking at the phonetic implementation of laryngeal sounds that can arise at different levels of the grammar (phonological, morphological & post-lexical prosodic domains) in two Uto-Aztecan languages: Chicontepec Nahuatl and Choguita Raramuri.
