Rebeka Campos - Astorkiza

Associate Professor | Hispanic Linguistics
Faculty
Professor Campos-Astorkiza works on phonetics and phonology, both from a theoretical and an experimental perspective. She is interested in how phonetic data can help us develop theoretical models to explain sound patterns. Her work falls within three broad topics: the role of contrast in the shaping of sound patterns – in phonetic processes such as the obstruent voicing effect, and in phonological phenomena such as vowel harmony-, the representation of duration and its linguistic use – including compensatory lengthening and other types of lengthening processes -, and the phonetics and phonology of voicing – including final devoicing and voicing assimilation.
