Dr Helen Sims-Williams
Academic and research departments
I am currently working on the AHRC funded project 'Loss of Inflection' as a postdoctoral researcher.
My main research interests lie in historical linguistics, morphology, and typology, particularly in the relationship between language change and language structure. I use diachronic data as a source of evidence for questions about the mechanisms of change and the mental architecture of morphology, incorporating quantitative and computational tools of analysis.
